LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — The Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games’ Organizing Committee will host a free concert at 6 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 26, in Lake Placid’s Mid’s Park to provide volunteer information and opportunities for the FISU Games. The event, featuring live music from the band Yellow Dog, will provide residents an opportunity to register as a volunteer for the 11-day winter multisport and educational festival happening Jan. 12-22, 2023, in Lake Placid and its surrounding communities.
“Volunteers are vital to making the Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games an unforgettable experience for the athletes, delegates and fans,” said Ashley Walden, executive director of the Adirondack Sports Council, the Lake Placid 2023 FISU Games’ Organizing Committee. “The volunteer opportunities are almost endless and this is a terrific way to share in the excitement and be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event.”
During the Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games, more than 2,500 collegiate athletes and delegates from over 50 nations are expected to converge on the region. The athletes, age 17-25, will compete in 12 high-level sports and 86 events, all taking place in the North Country region to include Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, Wilmington, Canton, Potsdam and North Creek.
Members of the Organizing Committee will be on hand to recruit volunteers and help to answer questions. Adirondack Mac, the Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games’ official mascot, will also roam Mid’s Park signing autographs and posing for pictures.
Volunteer benefits include an official Games’ uniform, designed by Karbon. The complementary items include a puffy insulated jacket, full-zip fleece, quarter-zip t-neck, hat and gloves. Additional benefits include discounts on Karbon clothing, access to events and celebrations, food and beverages during shifts, an invitation to a post-Games party, and an official Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games Certificate of Recognition.
