SPEAKER | RAY ZAHAB: Ray’s story is nothing short of remarkable. Zahab is a former cigarette-smoking slouch who’s become famous for becoming an ultramarathoner in his late 20s. He’s been pushing himself to the max by crossing the Sahara Desert and trekking through some of the most inhospitable environments in the world.
Ray is also the founder of the impossible2Possible (i2P) non-profit that takes young people on life-changing expeditions, while also using technology to allow other young people to follow along, back in the classrooms. Just returning from his latest adventure across Namibia and the Namib Desert on foot, approximately 1,850km, we’re excited to be inspired by Ray’s main message: we can truly exceed any limits we think we might have!
