Dreamfit Foundation Vocational Visit 
Shenton Park

Members and their guests are invited to visit the Dreamfit Foundation in Shenton Park www.dreamfit.com.au

 Dreamfit began when Founder Darren Lomman met Shane in a hospital car park. Darren was a third year engineering student at the University of Western Australia at the time and was trying to find an interesting project to take on for his course. Darren started talking to Shane, who had been paralysed after a motorcycle accident, about what he would love to be able to do. Shane told Darren his one dream would be to ride a motorcycle again.

 Dreamfit now works with hundreds of people with disabilities each year, sourcing and creating them unique solutions to fulfill their dreams and overcome challenges.

 AFTER THE VISIT:

Members and their guests will join the Rotary Club of Cambridge for their evening meeting nearby in Floreat, which includes a great two course buffet meal for $25.

 Although there is plenty of space, we will need to provide numbers by Friday 14 March.

RSVP to: Ian Fairnie: ianfairnie@gmail.com mb: +61 419 938 707

 Darren Lomman will be the special guest and will conduct a Q&A session after dinner, following up from the earlier Vocational visit.

Check out these videos to see the inpirational work from Darren and his team!
