Switch Open Street Sundays

Switch Open Street Sundays – Call for Volunteers

On Sunday, September 9th, a 3km stretch of roadway on the Halifax peninsula will be closed to vehicular traffic from 9am to 2pm and open to walkers, runners, bikers, in-line skaters, strollers, dancers, and much more. This event will be similar to the famous Ciclovia event held weekly in Bogota, which has been successfully duplicated the world over. Switch is about promoting healthy and active living, in a fun and festive community-based atmosphere. This will be the first Switch in Halifax, with the hopes of making it a more regular event.

This is your official invitation to get involved and help make a difference in Halifax by volunteering for Switch!
The organizing team is looking for volunteers to marshal the route (on wheels or on foot), provide information to event-goers, take photos, and be on hand for first aid. There are two volunteer shifts available on the day of the event: 8:30am-11:30am and 11:30am-2:30pm. This is a great way to enjoy the event, while ensuring the future success of Switch!

To sign up as a volunteer please fill out the form at the following link, preferably by August 31st: www.tinyurl.com/switch-volunteer. If you have already signed up – thank you!
