Up for the Challen

Members of the Combined Probus Club of Attadale were recently honoured to welcome Dr Craig Challen as their guest speaker.

Dr Challen’s talk was about his contribution to the rescue operation in northern Thailand to evacuate 12 children and their soccer coach from a flooded cave.

Dr Challen and his fellow diver Richard Harris received the 2019 Australian of the Year award in recognition of their heroic contribution to the rescue.

The talk covered the many difficulties and dangers that the team faced in achieving the ultimate success of the operation.

Members were uplifted by this amazing story and were convinced that Dr Challen is an extraordinarily brave but modest man.
