The Layne Beachley Foundation ‘Aim for the Stars’ was founded by Layne to prevent girls and women alike from enduring the same amount of adversity and financial hardship as Layne encountered to becoming a world champion surfer. Rated number 2 on the world tour, Layne had to work 4 jobs, up to 60 hours a week while training, surfing and aspiring to become the best in the world. Layne’s desire is to encourage, enable and empower girls and women to believe in themselves, invest in their future and fulfill their potential. Encompassing academic, science, business, sport and community pursuits, Aim for the Stars offers ambitious and dedicated females an opportunity to receive financial and moral support to help them achieve their goals. Layne’s support will give them the opportunity to maintain a determined focus on their goal, to achieve their dreams earlier in life and allow them to further their ambitions and aim for the stars.
