   Luke Anderson, founder of Stopgap Foundation

Champions are all around us – those who are naturally good at leading by example. Luke’s message is simple: be the change. Through his stories and experiences, Luke challenges us to find the same inspiration that drove him to his success, to find success in ourselves and be the change we wish to see. Breaking down barriers is something Luke has been doing since he founded the Stopgap Foundation in 2011. Following an injury to his spinal cord, Luke began his work building brightly coloured ramps to provide accessibility to previously inaccessible spaces.
