Seven Summits. Two Poles. One million to INSPIRE ACTIVE, HEALTHY KIDS.
On May 27, 2016 BEYOND 7/2 came to a victorious end.
The journey which began January 2016 saw professional endurance athlete Colin O’Brady conquer the Explorers Grand Slam in a world record shattering 139 days. Colin summited the tallest peak on each of the seven continents and skied the last degree to the North and South Poles. Less than 50 people have ever completed this staggering achievement, and only four in under a year. Through determination and endurance, Colin became the fastest person to complete the mountaineering challenge, also breaking the speed record for the Seven Summits in 132 days.
Colin is now a 2x world record holder!
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.
