The local organizing committee of the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 is seeking more than 1,500 volunteers, who will be integrated into every aspect of the event as members of “Crew22.”
Welcoming fans to the stadium, supporting the media, and assisting in the event’s sustainability efforts are just a few of the roles through which Crew22 team members will have an impact on the championships. There are many ways to get involved.
With 2,000 athletes from more than 200 nations and 1 billion global viewers, it will be the biggest track and field event ever held in the United States. At the center of it all will be Hayward Field at the University of Oregon.
The UO is working closely with the local organizing committee. Volunteering at the event is unrelated to employment with the university. Participation is voluntary and should occur outside of regularly scheduled work hours or during periods of scheduled time off.
““I know first-hand how the Oregon community shows up for athletes. It’s the people that make the Hayward Magic come alive,” said former UO student-athlete and Tokyo Olympic 800-meter bronze medalist Raevyn Rogers. “None of what happens on the track would be possible without the hard work of all the volunteers behind the scenes.”
