This came to me from Bacchus Marsh where one of the Shire-based TrailRiders lives. Kate Norman wrote this after "hiring" (quotation marks because it's free!) the TrailRider there and taking her Dad to the Murray. My heart sings when I hear stories like this.
Thank you to the Moorabool Shire Council for providing our family the opportunity to make the most of a very important and lovely weekend on the Murray River. Without the use of the all-terrain TrailRider wheelchair, we wouldn’t have been able to do half of the things we wanted to.

Brain cancer is an awful disease which kills more children than any other disease. Survival rates are low and have hardly changed for 30 years, despite significant increases in survival for Australians diagnosed with other types of cancer, such as prostate and breast cancer. Treatment is challenging because it affects our most vital organ. Brain cancer costs more per person than any other cancer, yet only receives a small fraction (< 5%) of federal government cancer research funding. Please show your support and make a donation, small or large, by visiting the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation website (curebraincancer.org.au/donations).

So I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you very much to the Moorabool Shire Council for helping make our family weekend away a memorable and enjoyable one. I would definitely use the TrailRider again!
