My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Senior Games, Palo Alto, CA, USA
It was my first time volunteering with the Senior Games and quite positive! I helped out at the Athletic Registration and then was the volunteer Lead for volleyball. With the exception of one athlete, I enjoyed meeting folks from all over the nation. I was glad that there was a well representation of volunteers - including young junior high and high schoolers. We all agreed that the venue was much more enjoyable than we thought it would be. How can you not get inspired when you see a 94 year old athlete pole vaulting? I'll be happy if I can just jog when I'm that age, let alone compete! After two full weeks, I'm happy to say that I've met new friends. Overall I had a great time. I could tell the Senior Games was well organized even just from the online registration for volunteers. I just wish I would have signed up before a lot of the popular events were already filled. Many thanks to Bonnie L. for providing *extras so I could pass the goodies to my volunteers. -KimChi
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Re-host the venue at Stanford University and have all the events be in Palo Alto, get the whole city of PA to be more involved..., and roll out the red carpet: have the medals be similar to the Olympic Games and reward the volunteers more kindly.
Ways to make it better...
the Volunteer Parking wasn't in a dusty area... and there were more goodies for the volunteers.
