Support Turia Pitt as she takes on her first IRONMAN for Interplast

 

Interplast ambassador, Turia Pitt was burned to 65% of her body during the 2011 Kimberley Ultra-marathon and it has been a long, cruel journey to get to where she is now.

 

During her rehabilitation it was her desire to one day become an IRONMAN that saw her through some of the most challenging times, “When I was in the hospital I was told that I’d never run again... I thought ‘I’ll show you, I’m going to do an IRONMAN one day".

 

Turia was introduced to Interplast through her reconstructive surgeon and it has become a cause that she passionately champions.

 

Please support our inspiring ambassador as she takes on this incredible challenge to support our life changng work.

 

For over 33 years Interplast has been sending volunteer medical teams to developing countries in the Asia Pacific region to provide free reconstructove surgery, signififcantly imrpoving the quality o flife for people living with treatable disabilities.  Interplast also heavily focuses on building the capacity of local medical staff through training and mentoring programs.

 

 

You can change a future today

 

 

 

Khamkhy with his mum post operation

 



 

 

 

This is Khamkhy, just one
future among the many
we have changed...

 

Khamkhy from Laos, pictured here, sustained burns to his
left 
foot at the age of just 3 months.  His injuries were not
properly treated at the time and they lead to the debilitating
burn contracture you can see in the photo above.  
Eventually Khamkhy would have been unable to walk. 

 

Interplast volunteers released his burn scar contracture
during a 3 hour operation which enabled 
him to walk and
run properly for the first time in his life.
