Alice Sloan Expedition


The Alice Sloan Expedition originated from the tragic death of Alice Sloan on an outdoor education program in 2005. Alice was born on the first day of winter, June 1st, 1989 and lost her life at the age of 16 on the last day of winter, August 31st, 2005. In December 2005 the Alice Sloan Trust was established by her family who felt inspired by the way she lived her life with love, passion and enthusiasm. The Trust aims to provide young people, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, or the support to participate in varied pursuits including sport, dance, music, art and outdoor education. The Trust, a sub fund of the Melbourne Community Foundation, provides financial and in-kind support to enable young people from all walks of life to experience activities similarly to those Alice enjoyed and so assist their development during their formative years. Opportunities that foster fun and friendship and promote personal and skill development are the focus of activities supported by the Trust.
