The torch has been lit for the 2018 Kimberley/Cranbrook 55+ BC Games.
The ceremony was held Sunday afternoon in Balment Park with local Olympian India Sherret running the torch.
Co-chair Sandy Zeznik says they’re getting excited with the games only three months away.
“We’re well on our way so we hope that we just keep moving forward and have a wonderful games.” says Zeznik.
She adds they’re still looking to fill many of their 1200 volunteer positions.
“[People] should volunteer because it’s going to be fun, number one.” says Zeznik. “You should volunteer because you can say ‘I was there in the 2018 [55+ BC] Games when they were in Kimberley/Cranbrook.”
“It’s really going to be easy.” says Zeznik. “There’s a whole pile of areas to volunteer and there’s something to suit everyone.”
The 2018 Kimberley/Cranbrook 55+ BC Games run from September 11th to 15th.
