About The Event

Kay Danes knows what it is like to live dangerously. In December 2000, she and her husband Kerry, an Australian Special Forces (SAS) soldier, were illegally held hostage in Laos. There they endured brutal interrogations, mock executions and torture.

The Australian Government immediately intervened and after almost a year of diplomatic haggling, finally secured the couple's release. Since that horrific ordeal, Kay Danes has become one of Australia's most recognised humanitarians, speaking to several U.S. Congressional forums, National Press Clubs and Conferences on World Affairs.  Kay was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for her service to the international community in human rights & social justice.  Kay is also the 2019/20 President of the Rotary E-Club of Global Trekkers D7690, headquartered in North Carolina USA.
