With the Special Olympics Montana 2013 State Summer Games less than a week away, organizers are calling on the public to help and volunteer for the three-day event.

The games will be held in Billings from May 15-17 and feature more than 1,000 Montana athletes with intellectual disabilities competing in Olympic-style sports.

Organizers expect the games to bring more than 2,000 people — athletes, friends, family, coaches and spectators — to Billings. The games are largely run on volunteer power.

This is the second of three consecutive years that the games will be held in Billings, and last year they brought in about 2,000 volunteers to do everything from timing and scoring events to setting up and breaking down venues.

Shifts are available throughout each day. Volunteers are especially needed during the afternoon hours of competition.

For more information, call the volunteer hotline at 406-896-5695 or visit the Special Olympics Montana website.
