Jordan Pedley, MAX Plant’s Director of Strategic Initiatives and WA Mining Club Committee member, recently completed filming for a charity TV show produced by Charity TV Global called Adventure All-Stars.
Jordan stated ‘’last week I gave up all control and went away to a location I wasn’t sure of, with a bunch of people I’ve never spoken to, with no idea of the itinerary. Every day the crew would take us to two activities, and we wouldn’t know what they were until we got there. I haven’t laughed constantly so hard, in a long time. Nor have I been so touched by an amazing group of supportive humans so passionate about making a difference in this world. We all allowed ourselves to be vulnerable to raise money for our chosen charities, and that created a pretty strong family bond between us all’’.
Jordan was on the TV show to raise money for a charity we work very closely with, Project Karma. Project Karma’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and protect all children from sexual slavery and abuse.
The first day of filming was in the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia. It started with a morning surf at Middleton Beach. The afternoon was back into the water with The Big Duck Boat Tours. Consisting of a jet boat tour to see dolphins, seals, and beautiful coastal views.
Day two started with filming at Waitpinga Farm Quad Bike Adventures. Spectacular views of the Waitpinga River, The Southern Ocean, and Waitpinga Beach as well as breathing in the fresh country air. They then headed off to Softfoot Farm, a property nestled in picturesque Hindmarsh Valley, and enjoy the opportunity to get up close and personal with our herd of world-class alpacas.
The third day of filming in the Fleurieu episode of Adventure All Stas started on jet skis thanks to Adelaide Jetski Hire. The morning was full of speed, spins, and laughs. The afternoon wound down with tastings at Smiling Samoyed Brewery, a family-owned award-winning brewery. Every single drop of Smiling Samoyed beer, in both kegs or in bottles, has been made and packaged on-site at Myponga.
‘’The fourth day was the most challenging’’, Jordan Pedley stated. Arriving at South Coast Circus the team had no idea what was to come. Being afraid of heights made Jordan very nervous as to what was to come. With tears, sweat, and laughter they tackled the (Aerial Hoop), Hammock, heights and spins. After the cirrus class they took a hummer limousine to Maxwell Wines. Jordan came second in both competitions to win the ticket for a helicopter ride, but unfortunately didn’t make the ride.
The last day of filming Adventure All Stars episode in the Fleurieu Region and final activity was snorkeling at Port Noarlunga Reef.
Jordan filmed with three other charities, Mindful Aus, Rize Up, and Headspace. She commented that the trip would not have been the same without the support and love from the new family she had just met.
As a family-owned business, we feel proud to be able to support charities doing such incredible work.
