City2Surf 2011: Join Kurt Fearnley and the AVI All Stars to celebrate 60 years of international volunteering
10 June 2011
To celebrate 60 years of international volunteering, AVI Board Member and wheelchair athlete Kurt Fearnley will compete in the City2Surf for the first time on Sunday 14 August - and you can join him.

Joining Kurt will be the AVI All-Stars, a team made up of AVI staff, returned volunteers and supporters.
You can be a part of this team celebrating the 60th anniversary of Herb Feith’s pioneering journey to Indonesia to start his volunteer placement. Herb was the first official Australian international volunteer in 1951.
Herb's actions inspired a global international volunteering movement and the creation of the Volunteer Graduate Scheme and the Overseas Service Bureau, now known as Australian Volunteers International.
