An Inspired journey
In 2001, my life changed. I had a meeting of fate with Palden Gyatso, an ex-political prisoner from Tibet. Palden was imprisoned by the Chinese for over 30 years and tortured daily. He had gone through so much, but he kept a truly inspiring resolve to not give up hope.
I wanted to take his teachings with me back to the western world and asked him how I could possibly do this. He said, “Do dharma. Do good work. Be it.”
So I did.
I returned home to Australia and created Inspired Adventures. I wanted to take people on the journey of a lifetime, both physically and emotionally. I desired to give every single person the opportunity to do something good for themselves and for charity. I wanted to encourage people to push themselves and achieve greatness, far beyond anything they ever thought possible.
Since our very first Inspired Adventure, which was in 2005, we have coordinated over 400 charity challenges across 20 countries, each raising tens of thousands of dollars for worthwhile causes and engaged more than 5,000 community fundraisers.
From small and hopeful beginnings to achieving over $28 million raised, I am in awe of the achievements of our many charity partners and am continually inspired by the generosity and courage of our adventurers.
It is this passion and dedication that heartens and inspires us to reach further and achieve more.
