BENEFITING: ALLIANCE FOR A HEALTHIER GENERATION

EVENT: Beyond 72

EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2015

Colin O’Brady

THE STORY:

Endurance athlete Colin O’Brady aims to complete the Explorers Grand Slam in a world record shattering six months. He's endeavoring to climb the Seven Summits, the tallest mountain on each continent, and ski to the North and South Pole all while raising $1 million to inspire active, healthy kids in partnership with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.

After a life changing burn accident in Thailand in 2008 that left Colin unable to walk with injuries covering nearly 25% of his body primarily his legs and feet, he was commited to beating the odds. He set himself a goal in the hospital that he would complete a triathlon and make a full recovery. After 18 months of rehab with the support of family, friends and doctors, Colin signed up for the Chicago triathlon. Not only did Colin cross the finish line but surprised himself and everyone he knew when he came in first place, winning the Olympic distance amateaur division that day.

Colin has spent the last six years as a professional triathlete, racing around the globe in more than 25 countries, representing the USA in international competitions in all distances of the sport. 

Now at the age of 31 with peak fitness under his belt and a lifelong love of the mountains, he's turning his attention to BEYOND 7/2. Compelled to give back, Colin set himself another ambitious endurance challenge with the mission to inspire kids to lead active, healthy lives so they can be happier and more successful. He's motivated to share the gifts of the outdoors through his journey with the Explorers Grand Slam, and help inspire kids to set goals and dream big, keep moving and get outside, and make healthy life decisions.

Colin is one of the finest young men I have met in sometime and his commitment to this challenge speaks volumes about his ability to impact our world. Great to have climbed with him on Mt. Vinson. Very best to you Colin and to the goal of changing the trajectory of childhood obesity. 2 years ago
