City of Wanneroo local and Australian Of the Year Craig Challen will be speaking at a special Toastmasters event next month.
The inside account of the breathtaking rescue that captured the world. For seventeen days, the world watched and held its breath.
In 2018, Dr Challen, alongside his diving partner Dr Richard 'Harry' Harris, were invited to assist in the rescue operation of a Thai soccer team trapped Thailand's deep Tham Luang Cave, in a story that gripped the world. The pair worked 14-16 hour days making trips into the cave on a daily basis, working cooperatively to ensure the safe evacuation from the cave for everyone. Craig’s expertise and experience in diving saw him help to de-kit the boys of their diving equipment after escaping the first flooded section of the evacuation route, carry them to the next section and prepare them for the next dive.
