50 Years of Volunteers

When the Arctic Winter Games are held in Whitehorse in 2020, it will mark 50 years since the first Games were held in Yellowknife.

As part of our anniversary celebrations, we’ll be sharing profiles of long-time Yukon volunteers each month. The AWG would not be possible without the thousands of volunteers who have dedicated their time over the past 50 years.

Thank you for volunteering your time!
