Volunteer

Call for Volunteers!

The commitment from volunteers is one of the unique characteristics of our event and one of the biggest compliments we receive from our athletes and visitors is how our community embraces our event.  This is an outcome of the wonderful support received of our volunteers. The Challenge Shepparton event would not possible without our comprehensive volunteer program.  A big thank you to all those who volunteered last year, your time, effort and contribution make race day exciting and safe for all participants and spectators.  Your contribution is paramount and creates a welcoming atmosphere to visitors.  Challenge Shepparton is a great way to raise valuable funds for your group, club or organisation.

As part of our partnership with the Shepparton Triathlon Club (STC), they assist with volunteer planning and recruitment.  This role has been performed by the STC for many years going back to when the triathlon event was held at the Kialla Lakes venue.  They have a great understanding of the event and endorse the value that volunteers bring to the event.  With their expertise we believe the volunteer coordination will be smooth and well communicated.

Stacey Shields from STC is our 2016 Volunteer Coordinator and she has been briefed by the previous coordinator Simone Cain, who is stepping back this year to take a well-earned rest.  The event venue is the Victoria Park Lake precinct and the site will be transformed into a sports mecca over the full weekend which is exciting for volunteers, participants and spectators.

Stacey is now recruiting volunteers for many and varied roles. If you would like to volunteer please download the Expression of Interest form here. Complete the form, save your details and email to: volunteer@challengeshepparton.com.au

Emails are preferred however if you have any queries call Stacey on 0419 698 646.

If you prefer to MAIL the form please address to: Volunteer Coordinator, Challenge Shepparton, Shepparton Tri Club, PO Box 2123, SHEPPARTON, 3630.

Once you have signed up as a volunteer, you will be kept up to date with regular event announcements, preparation details and once again we will provide a kit for each volunteer including a t-shirt, hat and a few other goodies including hydration and nutrition requirements.  A volunteer briefing will occur one week out from the event where group captains will receive final instructions.

Challenge Shepparton will also make a donation to your club or group based on the agreed number of volunteers supplied. We hope to simplify the donation process this year with STC assisting us with volunteer payments at the completion of the event.

We would like to thank our new Community Volunteer sponsor M+S Group who has joined the Challenge Shepparton family to assist in presenting our volunteer program. M+S have offices in Shepparton, Kyabram & Echuca, have a long history of community involvement and are happy to support an event that supports ‘Community’.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Challenge Volunteer Family.
