You can become a TV star and raise money for a spectacular desert project that celebrates Indigenous faith.

How this is possible also has something to do with Australian television royalty, Ray Martin.

Ray isn’t just a veteran journalist remembered vividly for his work on The Midday Show, A Current Affair and 60 Minutes.

He is also on the board of charitable foundation Walk A While. Created by Australian artist Ken Duncan, Walk A While supports remote Indigenous communities with work and creative projects.

Walk A While has partnered with upcoming reality TV show Adventure All Stars.
