Ends of the Earth Project & Walk of Oman

Ends of the Earth Project & Walk of Oman

I’m an adventure philanthropist who thrives on extreme sports and has a passion for helping sick kids and those in need. I have set myself some extraordinary challenges for the next 18 months, I hope you will support me in this journey and donate to my fundraising efforts.

My first challenge is in Oman this November and December 2020, to join Walking with the Wounded Expedition. Through my years and expertise of global adventuring, I have been invited to join this epic journey to help train and mentor veterans for the endurance needed to be successful with this type of challenge.

In 2021 I will continue with Ends of the Earth, my personal project to travel literally to the ‘Ends of the Earth’ under my own power… It will see me ski the 112km to the North and South Poles, to climb the 7 highest summits in the world, World Mount Everest and the remaining six highest peaks – Denali, Aconcagua, Vinson, Kilimanjaro, Puncak Jaya and Mount Kosciuszko - also known globally as the Explorers Grand Slam. It’s the holy grail that only 70 other adventurers have ever achieved.

What is extraordinary about my Ends of the Earth challenge is, upon skiing the Last Degree, I will endeavour to run a marathon at both the North and South Poles. This challenge has never been done before and I want to do this to raise vital funds for sick kids!

By supporting me on my challenges, you are helping Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation (SCHF) fund world-class healthcare for sick kids and give them the opportunity to live their healthiest lives now, and for the future.

In May 2018 SCHF expanded its fundraising portfolio to include all the paediatric services within Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network:

  • Kids Research
  • Bear Cottage
  • The Newborn and paediatric Emergency Transport Service (NETS)
  • Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick
  • The Children’s Hospital at Westmead

Your donation ensures these organisations can provide our kids with World-class care. 

Thank you for your support!
