Dowdney was also the Founder and CEO of LUTA Sportswear, the world’s first ‘life changing sportswear,’ which donated half its profits to Fight for Peace. Luke recently sold LUTA to Reebok, who now partner with Fight for Peace to further expand the organisation’s global reach. Luke has secured funding and support for Fight for Peace from major international organisations such as Comic Relief, IKEA Foundation, Save the Children, Reebok, the International Olympic Committee, British Olympic Association (Team GB) and UNESCO.
