The date for this year’s event is Sunday the 14thof November

This is the annual event when the Melbourne Branch of the Ulysses Club teams up with the National 3 Wheelers Association to hold a Family Fun Day for the clients of the Very Special Kids organisation and their families.

Last year there were about 200 people present, including the kids and their families and volunteers from the Ulysses Club and the National 3 Wheelers association. A magnificent time was had by all.

Please put this date in your diary and give some consideration to coming along on the day.  We need riders to take kids for a ride, if you have a spare helmet this would be most handy.  We also need a few people to help burn some snags and burgers.  Do you have any experience with face painting? Please let’s know if you have any first aid qualifications or if you are a RN.

This paragraph taken from the Very Special Kids website says it better than I can...

VERY SPECIAL KIDSis a unique organisation that supports families throughout their experience of caring for children with life-threatening illnesses, from diagnosis through to recovery or bereavement. Such illnesses include cancer, muscular dystrophy, neuro-degenerative and genetic conditions and rare syndromes.  Sadly, many of the children will not reach adulthood.


Feedback from members who have participated in Very Special Kids Day would indicate that it is a most rewarding experience.  It can be a bit confronting, but when you hear one of the mums saying that her kid, who has just been taken for a ride,  has not smiled like this for a long time, it becomes meaningful.

Hope to see you there...  Perry.
