We are looking for volunteers for the 2016 International Mine Rescue Competition being hosted by Canada for the first time ever in Sudbury.
Sudbury is expecting over 300 competitors and delegates from around the world. We want to ensure that this is an example of the finest hospitality Sudbury has to offer.
Some of the volunteer positions we are looking to fill are:
Ambassadors – Teams of 2 or 3 volunteers will be designated to each team to help support them while in Sudbury.
Ambassadors will help with directions to events and activities, give suggestions for food and entertainment during their visit, accompany teams to and from the opening and closing ceremonies, work with organizing committee on any issue that arise during the event. Language skills in Chinese, Spanish, Hindi, Polish, Russian, Slovak, Turkish, Ukrainian or Vietnamese would be a huge asset.
Parking and Sight Patrol – Volunteers would help to direct traffic in parking lots, ensure competitors and guest know where they are going, and make event officials aware of any issues that arise at various events leading up to and during the competition.
Event Volunteers – Help to ensure events run smoothly, organize water stations, help out organizing committee as needed
If you are interested in being part of this amazing event fill out the VOLUNTEER FORM.

Dear Community Partners.
The Healthy Kids Community Challenge wants to make sure that more kids can enjoy all the opportunities for active transportation and outdoor fun that are available in Greater Sudbury, including safe cycling in their neighbourhood.
Sudbury Cycles, a program of the Healthy Kids Community Challenge, will offer registered children a free bicycle and either a learn-to-ride session (for non-riders) or a safe cycling session (for kids who already know how to ride) in three neighbourhoods this spring. The program is designed for Greater Sudbury children aged 5 to 12 who want to learn to cycle or learn to ride more safely and who would not otherwise have access to a safe bike.
A bicycle and all safety gear will be provided for participants. Our friendly instructors will build kids' confidence and skills so they can learn to cycle safely and enjoy active transportation in their neighbourhood for years to come. The sessions will be offered in May and June 2016, and participants will be required to complete one of the courses in order to receive their bike. Please note- for the learn-to-ride course, each child must be accompanied by an adult who can actively help them learn.
Program registration is based on referrals from community groups and there are a limited number of spaces. Registration is open until March 23rd, or until the program is full. While we are not asking you to provide financial information for the family, please note that they will be asked to confirm the following statement on the application form: I confirm that my family's financial situation would make it very difficult for us to provide a safe, quality bicycle for our child
Selected Neighbourhoods: Flour Mill/Downtown; Hanmer; New Sudbury
In order to refer a family, simply fill in your agency name and contact info at the top of the attached form and give the form to the family to complete and submit. Eligible children will be accepted on a first come first served basis.
For more information please call Aaron 705-674-4455 ext. 2455.
About the Healthy Kids Community Challenge The Healthy Kids Community Challenge is Ontario's new drive to support the health of our children. Greater Sudbury has been chosen to be a part of it. That means new ideas and programs are coming to our community - things that make it easier for children to be active and eat healthier. These are key components to good health through adulthood. All kinds of groups have joined forces in our community - public health, recreation centres, schools and businesses, to name just a few. Our goal: help make our community a place where it's easy for kids to be healthy and active.
Thanks, and we look forward to receiving applications to this new program.
