Prud'homme Trucks Ltd. wins Volunteer Corporate Challenge

Ladies and Gentlemen… We have a winner!

SaskEnergy, the Presenting Sponsor and Champion of Volunteers for the 2005 Canada Summer Games, has led a major initiative to recruit volunteers for the Games as part of National Volunteer Week.

Today, we are happy to announce that Prud'homme Trucks Ltd. has won the Corporate Challenge by having the highest per capital volunteer registration of any of the participating corporate sponsors and has been crowned Volunteer Champion of National Volunteer Week. Congratulations are certainly in order! Their community spirit is a shining example of what can be accomplished when people truly believe in the power of community.

But there's still time!

With 105 days to go, the Canada Summer Games are still working towards our goal of 6000 volunteers. Becoming a Games volunteer requires a minimum commitment of 16 hours (four, 4 hour shifts). Volunteerism is an enriching experience that leaves a lasting impression on the individuals involved, as well as on the community as a whole.

If you would like to volunteer but are not registered, take a few minutes to do so on-line (www.regina2005.ca - Apply to be a Volunteer) - there are only 2800 spots remaining so apply soon to ensure your position within the Games.

Your time is valuable and we appreciate your volunteerism. For more information, please visit the 2005 Canada Summer Games website at www.regina2005.ca.


The Canada Summer Games will be held from August 6-20, 2005 in Regina and the surrounding communities of Moose Jaw, Lumsden and Saskatchewan Beach. More than 4,500 athletes, coaches, managers and officials from the 10 provinces and three territories will participate in the Games. The event is also expected to attract more than 200 members of the media, 750 VIPs and 12,000 visitors.

The Canada Games - Canada's premiere multi-sport event - are held every two years, alternating between summer and winter sports, at locations across Canada. The first Canada Games were held in 1967 in Quebec City as part of Canada's Centennial celebrations. The 2005 Canada Summer Games will coincide with Saskatchewan's Centennial. The Canada Games are the product of co-operation between the Government of Canada, provincial and territorial governments, host municipalities and the Canada Games Council.
