At the conference we wanted to celebrate some of the amazing projects that our volunteers have completed this year. Each TAD Group was asked to submit a nomination for the 2016 Project of the Year Award.
Mitchel Olsen is 10 years old and is a member of the Southern Cross bike club with his younger brother Andy.
Mitchel has cerebral palsy and can't walk or stand independently. He gets around mostly in a wheelchair but when he gets on his Freedom Wheels bike, he can feel the thrill of riding.
Amanda is mother to 1 year old Madeline. She was concerned about lifting Madeline safely when she grew as Amanda has a chromosomal disorder which has resulted in reduced height, osteoporosis and arthritis in her wrists and hands.
