Friday in Ballarat - toward an SVP? (Sherpa Volunteer Program)

Some of the best, most gratifying, TrailRider moments have been when a child, or younger person is the rider. The approach in Ballarat will lead to many such moments. Craig Donaldson from the City of Ballarat has had a focus on special schools from the first moments of moving toward the TrailRider.

Now the Ballarat Visitor Centre houses a TrailRider but, as with every chair, usage depends on public awareness and volunteers who will act as sherpas. 

In recognition of International Day for People with Disability (3rd December), there will be a TrailRider promotion on Friday 5th at the Ballarat Specialist School when all are welcome to try being sherpa (two TrailRiders will be there), to race in the Fun Run and to see the delight in many young faces
