For Layne Beachley after personally experiencing the financial pressures of supporting the early years of her professional surfing career, the seven times World Surfing Champion decided to establish the foundation to give assistance to women to achieve their ambitions.
“We are all born with the ability to achieve,” said Beachley, “but not all of us have the means. I am proud to be able to support and inspire women from all walks of life to believe in themselves, achieve their goals and fulfil their ambitions”
“My support will give females the opportunity to maintain a determined focus on their goal, to achieve their dreams earlier in life and allow them to further their ambitions and aim for the stars.”
The Foundation assists women with academic, cultural, sporting and community pursuits. The Aim for the Stars Foundation offers ambitious and dedicated females an opportunity to reach their goals and realise their dreams.
Layne, now 41, joined the world surfing tour in her final year of high school. By 1992 she had reached the top 10 and in 1998 she was named Women's ASP World Champion, a title she held for six years in succession and then again in 2006. She holds the greatest number of consecutive world titles – male or female.
Carol Gibbons’ studio is based on the Northern Beaches. Her passion for telling her subjects stories through her work has seen her win awards in Australia and Internationally. She is a proud supporter of Layne Beachley’s Aim for the Stars Foundation.
Calendar Club, is the largest and most successful seasonal pop-up retailer in Australia and New Zealand and operate over 120 kiosks or stores in major shopping centres across Australasia every year. Calendar Club is also very proud to be supporting the Aim for the Stars Foundation.
