Any donation, great or small, is greatly appreciated by Ben, Amy and the entire Challenge On Purpose community. All donations* will go directly to Seed Foundation Australia** to assist in offering a holistic, community-driven, wrap-around service that will produce sustainable improvements for health, education and employment outcomes in Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Communities in Northern Australia.
DONATE TO AMY
Amy is the co-founder of event management and coaching company, Events By Example as well as Challenge On Purpose. Passionate about growing businesses with events that set an example, Amy also has a deep love for charity events and fundraising for causes that are close to her heart.
This is not the first challenge Amy has taken on in the name of charity. She has previously shaved off her hair in honour of all women who have been and will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer, competed in a Spartan Obstacle Course Race for Vision Australia plus ran a half marathon and swam an ocean swim with Can Too for Cure Cancer Australia and The Cancer Council. On top of this, Amy has held numerous charity events for individuals and organisations who are in need of support and donors, her proudest is a Trivia Night at the age of 18 for her cousin Connor who lives with Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy where $5000 was raised to help the family travel to Disneyland for Connor to have the trip of a lifetime!

DONATE TO BEN
At age 16, Ben lost his eyesight overnight to a rare genetic syndrome, Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy. This sudden, traumatic event turned his world upside down. It redefined everything he knew and crushed all his childhood dreams in an instant. Yet it was also the beginning of new form of visions, ‘True Vision’ and ‘Limitless Vision’.
Ben has a very unique lifestyle which includes motorbike riding, water skiing and traveling extensively by himself despite only having 2% vision. Ben is also the only legally blind person in the world to have competed, untethered, in the internationally recognised Spartan Obstacle Course Race and in February 2017 the 22 year old became the first blind person to compete in the most famous water ski event in the world, the Southern 80. Ben uses these achievements (and tough experiences) to motivate and inspire school, community and corporate groups as a professional, motivational speaker to help others discover their own form of 'True and Limitless Vision'.
