Gymnastics Canada seeks volunteers for 2018 Canadian Gymnaestrada event in Richmond, BC over Canada Day weekend

The 2018 Canadian Gymnaestrada is a celebration of gymnastics and movement and will showcase both traditional and non-traditional gymnastics routines in a non-competitive environment. The event will bring together over 1100 performers from across Canada who vary in age, gender, and ability.

“This is such an exciting and unique event and it’s something which we only get to host every four years. We really want to make it a huge success and getting some local volunteers to help with the event’s execution would really make a difference,” said Julie Forget, Director of Communications and Marketing at Gymnastics Canada. “There’s a wide variety of volunteer positions and people can sign up for whatever times and jobs they wish making it as easy as possible for them.”
