The World Athletics Championships Oregon22 will be coming to our city in July of 2022, and there are so many ways to get involved. Notably, volunteer registration for the event is now open. If you want to be a part of history, and to have an impact on these Championships, this is your opportunity!
The local organizing committee is seeking the support of 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 these Championships.
With 2,000 athletes from over 200 nations, and 1 billion global viewers, it will be the biggest track and field event to ever come to the United States. At the center of it all will be the spectacular Hayward Field at the University of Oregon, a fitting stage for the best athletes in the world to fight for the right to call themselves World Champions.
There is no doubt that Hayward Magic will be in full force, but it is the volunteers who will help bring that magic to life. As former Oregon Duck and Tokyo Olympic 800m bronze medalist Raevyn Rogers said: “I know first-hand how the Oregon community shows up for athletes. It’s the people that make the Hayward Magic come alive. None of what happens on the track would be possible without the hard work of all the volunteers behind the scenes.”
