Mr Cameron Bellamy

“Access to education is a basic human right, but it is not available to everyone. If we can support a child’s education, there is no limit to what they can achieve for themselves and for the community.”

Cameron Bellamy is an endurance athlete, businessman and co-founder of African charity, the Ubunye Challenge.

After growing up in what he describes as a privileged home in Cape Town, Bellamy vowed to make a difference after witnessing the inequalities around him. Upon graduating from Rhodes University, Bellamy completed a Master of International Economics and Finance at The University of Queensland (UQ).

Bellamy founded the Ubunye Challenge in 2011, and it is through endurance challenges that Bellamy and his team of athletes raise money to support communities in some of the poorest areas of South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Bellamy is an impressive athlete in his own right. In 2018, he became the eleventh person in history to complete the Oceans Seven challenge after swimming seven of the toughest channel swims in the world.

Bellamy is also the co-founder of Cobaltix Compliance, a boutique consulting firm specialising in cyber security and compliance.
