For our fifth instalment of our SoleFit Speaker Series, we were joined by New York Times best-selling author of Born to Run, Christopher McDougall, along with impossible2Possible founder and extreme adventurer, Ray Zahab. As a fundraiser for i2P, we were able to raise over $7000 to help support upcoming youth expeditions!
Ray Zahab started off the evening by sharing stories of his amazing adventures and giving us a glimpse into the preparation necessary to get ready for a major expedition. Christopher McDougall followed Ray with some incredible stories of human capabilities and how we can all strive to ‘be useful’!
After a great Q & A session with our speakers, Christopher signed books and chatted with attendees. The evening finished off with a screening of ‘Run Free’ which was based on the life of Caballo Blanco, one of the main characters in the book ‘Born to Run’. Such a fun night!
Thanks so much for all those who attended and supported our event! A special thank you goes to our emcee extrodinaire Mark Sutcliffe.
We can’t wait for next year!! Stay tuned…
