Ultra-endurance Athlete, Entrepreneur and Keynote Speaker
Sean’s life was forever changed when his football teammate passed away unexpectedly at 18. This experience taught Sean how precious life is and therefore the value of chasing his dreams and living life to the fullest. Running initially helped Sean cope with his grief, but it soon evolved into a passion that he could use to inspire and help others.
Sean firmly believes that our dreams give us hope for the future, especially during tough times. This is why he supports Make-A-Wish Australia with his running, helping children with critical illnesses achieve their number 1 wish.
At just 21 years old, Sean ran 50 marathons in 50 consecutive days, raising over $30,000 for The Compassionate Friends charity. He also won The Bali Hope Ultra, an 84km race across Bali that supports disadvantaged children’s access to quality education. In 2022, Sean ran 4,001km in 60 days, from Cairns to Melbourne, raising over $100,000 for Make-A-Wish. Despite facing the devastating loss of his running coach, and business partner during his journey, Sean’s resilience and determination inspired many. His efforts helped make hundreds of unique wishes come true, bringing hope and happiness to sick children and their families.
Sean is currently preparing for his next challenge in 2024, where he is attempting to set a world record by becoming the fastest person to run around Australia, a nearly 14,000km journey to raise $1.4 million for Make-A-Wish Australia.
Sean’s core belief is that we should use our talents to help and inspire others. He takes on extraordinary challenges for charity, and his keynote speeches reflect his inspiring message. Sean’s presentations are a moving and transformative experience, leaving audiences feeling empowered to chase their personal and professional goals. Sean uses cinematic documentary footage to share stories from his journey, making his speeches a truly unforgettable experience.
