Major Glenn Todhunter
Care Expo is proud to welcome Major Glenn Todhunter as the Ambassador for the 2018 Event.
Care Expo is proud to welcome Major Glenn Todhunter as the Ambassador for the 2018 Event. On September 22 1995, Major Glenn Todhunter found himself trapped in the wreckage of his aircraft after it had crashed heavily during a training flight. After several days of intensive care and being on life support, he awoke to the reality of having both his legs amputated below the knee. It took Glenn eight years to rebuild his life. Glenn was told that he would never fly again in the Army with a disability. He did not accept that and with pure guts and determination he learned how to walk with prosthetic limbs, learnt how to drive a vehicle and most importantly for Glenn, he learned how to fly again. He became the first and only amputee aviator in the history of the Australian Defence Force. Glenn now proudly works for the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia, South Eastern Section as their head of Flight Training.
Major Glenn Todhunter will share his unique story at this event.

His incredible journey of hope and determination featured on the ABC’s Australian Story program and he was selected as a finalist for Queenslander of the Year in recognition of his strength of character and ability to inspire others with disabilities to shoot for the stars. His motto …’the only limits to extraordinary results in life are the limits we place on ourselves’
