I am proud to be an Ambassador for SurfAid's #MakeAWave challenge this year. I have set out to be either surfing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, doing surf-inspired workouts or something else surf related to make a wave of impact for SurfAid for 30 days in September. Now that the challenge has started, I'm finding it a little difficult to juggle life commitments and the challenge; however, I feel confident that I'll easily make up the three days I missed in the first week by being extra active in the coming weeks.

So far, I've raised $20 towards my goal of raising over $500 to help SurfAid deliver their programs that give people in remote communities connected to us through surfing a hand-up rather than a handout. SurfAid's geographical focus is on the heartlands of surfing, where few visitors but surfers go, making their work unique. They specialise in working in very isolated villages where maternal and child mortality rates are some of the highest in the world.
