Albany--  1,700 athletes and coaches will descend on Albany this weekend for the Special Olympics State Fall games and organizers still need your help to deal with the crowds.  

The 2007 Fall Games kick off Friday. Hundreds of volunteers signed up to help but organizers still need people to fill in some spaces.

Volunteers are still needed for Bocce games on Saturday evening but they say there's a place for everyone.

"We have long distance running, walking and we have cycling so there is a sport for everyone and all of the venues are free and open to the public," said Kristen Caso.

Organizers also encourage you to come to the venues and cheer on the athletes. This will be the last year Albany will host the state games.

To find out how to volunteer, call Leslie Anderson at 1-800-866-4400 Ext. 120 or email her at leslie.anderson@specialolympicsga.org.
