Becoming a Global Messenger means a great deal to Jason Donovan. The champion skier and golfer has many goals he’d like to achieve and the Global Messenger programme has provided inspiration.
In addition to his Special Olympics Kapiti sports training, Jason is doing a defensive driving course in a bid to secure his full licence this year.
He is also eager to get up in the air as a glider pilot. To most this would be a far-fetched dream but this Kapiti Coast athlete could well see it come true.
Jason is a member of the Wellington Gliding Club and volunteers at the Paraparaumu airfield in weekends and over summer, helping pull the gliders up to the launch pad and launching them.
This winter he’ll be flying down the ski slopes and continuing his work in the Kapiti community.
