Parks and Recreation Seeks Volunteers for iCan Bike and iCan Swim Programs
Greensboro Parks and Recreation’s Adaptive and Inclusive Recreation Unit is seeking volunteers to help teach individuals with disabilities ride a bike and swim. The iCan Swim program will be held June 10-14 at the Greensboro Aquatic Center and iCan Bike happens August 12-16 at the Greensboro Swarm Fieldhouse. Sign up at the iCan Bike volunteer page or the iCan Swim volunteer page.
The programs need volunteers who are at least 15 years old and able to commit to the same session each day for five days. Volunteers for iCan Bike must be able to walk or jog approximately three miles during each session. iCan Swim does not require as much physical exertion, but volunteers should be prepared to be in a shallow pool for a full 60 minutes. No prior experience working with individuals with disabilities is necessary for either program.
