Last year volunteers from Sydney Olympic Park to Cronulla had a great day - here are some of the highlights. We can't wait to see on on the 8th of March to do it all over again!
“I got to meet new people and make friends due to me volunteering” 

“It was like an exercise better than sitting at home (though i did not lose any kilos but had fun)”

“You get to stand and watch while a display of all types of bikes and accessories are paraded past you.” 

“You get to promote cycling and cycling events to passers by who stop to ask you about what’s going on.”

“You have some responsibility for the success of the event. It's a accomplishment that makes you feel satisfied.” 

“You get to provide info to passer-by, motivate the riders and sense the satisfaction in them”

“I loved being a route marshall because of the privilege of sharing in someone else's joy (in cycling further/harder/longer than they ever dreamed of)” 

“I got to be part of a team and interact with really great people that I would not have met otherwise.”

“I am able to bring the smile on faces of participant. In my mind- what I can not do due to my age- but in spirit I am with them.”
We can't wait to hear what your best moment of volunteering for the Heart Foundation Gear Up Girl is this year!
