With a little over one month left before the JCC Maccabi Games begin, Team Columbus can see the light at the end of the tunnel after a long journey of preparations.
The work is far from over, but thanks to everyone who has joined the team, excitement is building and we are where we need to be: Teams are practicing, volunteer orientations have begun, and soon we will see our efforts materialize into an extraordinary week of competitions, friendship, Judaism, social action, and community.
The JCC Maccabi Games would be impossible without the tireless efforts of committed individuals who have worked as volunteers, committee members, host families, athletes, and parents. Thank you to those who have served in these capacities and continue to recruit others to do the same.
A large part of our success can also be attributed to our generous sponsors. It takes many kinds of sponsorship to make the JCC Maccabi Games possible. Whether it’s in-kind or monetary, corporate or individual giving, our sponsors are invaluable. Thank you to all of those who have contributed (listed below).
There is still plenty of work to be done! We look forward to new volunteers, host families, athletes, and sponsors joining Team Columbus in the next five weeks. Learn more and register to volunteer on Sign-Up Genius. Host families, athletes, and spectators can register online. Contact Sheila Cline at email@example.com for more information about sponsorship opportunities. For all things Maccabi, contact Jeanna Brownlee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Look for the Columbus JCC Maccabi Games mobile app early in July! The app will have everything you need for the week of the Games, from the daily schedule to maps to scores. More information coming soon!
