As part of our non-profit Team See Possibilities, we leave tomorrow for New Zealand. Our goal is to complete a major endurance challenge on 7 continents in 7 years, and this is Number 5. We’ll run the 28-mile Tongariro Circuit and the 33-mile Milford Track. Both routes are rugged and typically done over 4 days, but we’ll attempt to complete each one nonstop in less than a day. New Zealand’s Otago Daily News recently published a story about our attempt here.
We’ll visit schools in Auckland and Dunedin to meet with vision-impaired children, encouraging them to challenge their perceived limits just like Dan. To date, we have raised over $100,000 to support schools in the countries we have visited. And this year we are launching the Team See Possibilities Global Scholarship Fund. The program aims to help students with vision loss go on to higher education and find their own meaningful career path. We have already raised $10,000 toward our goal of $25,000. If we raise enough funds, we will offer 5 scholarships of $5,000 each.

I’d also like to challenge you to think about your own perceived limits that may be holding you back. What excites and intimidates you? And what are you waiting for? Go out and create your own adventure!
