Our volunteers get as much from the process as do participants, feeling the warmth of sharing their love of nature.
We provide opportunities for people with disabilities to enable their individual journeys – literally and figuratively.
British Columbia Mobility Opportunities Society volunteers enable participants to access nature by land or water. Getting the chance to hike or paddle is transformative – it lifts the spirits.
There is something transcendent about being in nature. We have seen that it benefits all participants, adding to perceived quality of life and challenging individuals’ perceptions of their capabilities.
Our hiking and paddling programs would not function without dedicated volunteers – can you, or do you know anyone who can help? Hiking volunteers just need to be fit enough to walk with a TrailRider, while paddling volunteers need on-the-water experience, including Paddle Canada certification.
