He is the boy who has made a name for himself by embarking on amazing adventures across Tasmania.
Now Jack Duffy has a formal foundation in his name.
Jack lives with severe cerebral palsy spastic paraplegia.
An ‘Overland Jack’ experience saw his father, Chris, carry him in a specially customised backpack across the 65-kilometre Overland Track in 2015.
The intrepid duo have kayaked the East Coast and Mr Duffy even pushed his beloved son up Mount Wellington for Point to Pinnacle.
The 10-year-old’s family has started a not-for-profit foundation which will allow other children who live with disability the opportunity to embrace new adventures.
The Just Like Jack not-for-profit organisation will see all of Jack’s future adventures planned under the charity’s umbrella.
The foundation hopes to raise enough money to purchase a minimum of five chairs to involve other kids with disability in activities. The foundation will also have volunteers who can push the kids along at events.
The Just Like Jack team will participate in the Launceston Ten, Burnie Ten and the Point to Pinnacle this year.
"We want to raise money, to get Tasmanian special needs kids out there, and their families as well,” Jack’s mother Erin Duffy said.
She said the foundation aimed to organise adventures for others, similar to those Jack had been lucky enough to experience.
"He absolutely loves it and the feedback he gets from other people is amazing,” Mrs Duffy said.
Mrs Duffy said her little boy and his adventures had brought the West Launceston family closer together.
The charity is hoping businesses will sponsor the endeavour and purchase a chair for the charity, which cost $2000 each.
Mrs Duffy said the chairs were purchased at Devonport and then could be customised to suit children depending on their specific needs.
Just Like Jack is also open to other donations, and volunteers are also welcome.
