Volunteer for the Walk!


We at VOKRA thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to help us out with this event. We anticipate this to be the event of the year and we couldn't do it without all of you!


There will be two Volunteer Orientation days for those interested in assisting on the day to come out and get acquainted with not only the day but also to receive your Volunteer assignments. If is very important that you try to make it to at least ONE of the orientation days.

The days are:

Wednesday September 8, 2010 @ 6pm

and Friday September 10th, 2010 @ 6pm

We promise to not take up more then an hour of your time on those days. We will all meet at the Jericho Sailing Center @ 6pm on those days. When you arrive you will also be given your official VOKRA T shirt and all the instructions necessary for the day's event.

Please email Diandra to confirm that you will be attending an orientation day, which day you will be attending, and your t-shirt size. Also please let me know if you have any other people that would be interested in volunteering and coming out with you, along with their info and T-shirt size. Her email is diandra@vokra.ca


We are in need of any volunteers to assist us with Postering and Flyering our beautiful city in an effort to spread the word about the event.

Posters and Flyers can be picked up starting tomorrow evening @ Karen's Place in Kits next to the foster food or you can notify Diandra and she can either deliver some flyers to you or you can pick them up from her office location in Yaletown or her home in North Vancouver. If you would like to arrange delivery or pick up from Diandra, please let her know via email, diandra@vokra.ca

Finally we are still in need of more donations and walkers.
