Thank you to all volunteers

Thank you to all volunteers

This week is National Volunteer Week and Speed Skating Canada would like to take this opportunity to thank all of its volunteers for the time and dedication that they put into the betterment of our sport.

Speed skating in Canada counts on countless volunteers to make each event a success, engaging participants, running developmentally appropriate programs, and the promotion of our sport. Speed Skating Canada would like to thank each and every one of you for your contributions. We truly appreciate the support you give to the members and to our sport.

To all the volunteers, coaches, officials, administrators, event organizers, committee and board members; from the grassroots level, to the branches, to the international organizing committees, we thank you! Speed skating in Canada would not be the same without you.

National Volunteer Week (NVW) pays tribute to the millions of Canadian volunteers who graciously donate their time and energy. This year's NVW takes place the week of April 15-21, 2012. It is Canada's largest celebration of volunteers, volunteerism, and civic participation.
