Seven Summits. Two Poles. One million to INSPIRE ACTIVE, HEALTHY KIDS.
BEYOND 7/2: The journey begins January 2016. Professional endurance athlete Colin O’Brady aims to become the fastest person to complete the Explorers Grand Slam. He’ll attempt to summit the tallest peak on each of the seven continents and ski to the North and South Pole. Less than 50 people have ever completed this staggering achievement, and only two in under a year. Through determination and endurance, Colin aims to complete the entire expedition in a world record shattering six months.
Today in America, one out of three children and adolescents is overweight or obese, putting them at risk for serious health problems. BEYOND 7/2 aims to raise $1 million in partnership with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Their goal is to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity and to empower kids to develop lifelong, healthy habits. Colin is excited to champion this cause as he has reaped the benefits of healthy eating and exercise in his own life. His dream: to inspire kids and adults to live active, healthy lives.
