Ava draws her inspiration from her younger brother Lindsay, but she is determined to help more than just her little brother.
The 11-year-old became a Guide Dogs Queensland Youth Ambassador late last year after Lindsay attended a Kids’ Camp for vision-impaired children.
In just a few weeks she raised $1,700. This year, she’s aiming even higher.
“I know it is really expensive to train just one Guide Dog, so that also inspired me. There’s over 30 Queenslanders wanting a Guide Dog who don’t currently have one, so I wanted to help.
“If Lindsay needs a Guide Dog when he’s older, I would want to help make that happen.”
