Challenge Wanaka- Why we work with volunteers

As a charitable trust, The Challenge Wanaka Sports Trust is dependent on the goodwill, knowledge, skills and valuable time of volunteers.  One of our key objectives, alongside providing sporting events, is to enable social presence by providing a volunteering programme in the community and inspiring people of all ages and abilities to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.  We feel it is an opportunity to open our doors and increase public awareness of our events and allow the public to contribute. 

Through working with volunteers we find we benefit greatly from their inspiring passion and endless multi-tasking abilities and the athletes are able to follow their dreams.  We aim to provide opportunities for people of all ages to become part of a team, learn skills, meet others and gain memorable experiences.  Volunteers are the heart and soul of Challenge Wanaka.
