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.
The program offers successful applicants the chance to experience cool challenges in a secret location, as well as raise money for Walk A While project.
The Walk A While project will establish a tourist destination at the base of a 20m-high cross being erected at Memory Mountain, about three hours west of Alice Springs.
This giant, illuminated cross is a symbol of Christian faith in the outback. It was conceived by Indigenous believers in consultation with Duncan.
