In honour of International Women's Day 2018, Sky Foundation is proud to present the #PressForProgress Luncheon with Special Guests Turia Pitt and Samantha Heathwood.

Turia is a humanitarian, athlete, motivationalist, and new Mum! At just 24, Turia was an ex-model, fitness junkie and successful mining engineer whose life was turned upside down when she became trapped in a grass fire while competing in a 100km ultramarathon. She was choppered out of the remote desert barely alive, with full thickness burns to 65% of her body. Turia lost seven fingers, and spent six months in hospital undergoing over 200 operations. Spending two years in recovery, Turia is living proof that, with the right mindset, we truly can achieve anything. Renowned for her pure grit, indomitable spirit and passion for humanitarian work, hear how Turia has gone on to thrive in the ultimate story of triumph over adversity in her exclusive one-hour presentation at the Sky Foundation's #PressForProgress Luncheon.

Nine News North Queensland presenter, Samantha Heathwood, is the face of Nine News across the North. At 6.00pm each week night, Samantha co-presents eight Nine Local News bulletins to Nine News Far North Queensland, as part of one of the biggest expansions of news operations in Australia. Sky Foundation are delighted to have Samantha on board as the MC-extraordinaire of our #PressForProgress Luncheon.
