I first met Mark while competing against him in the North Pole Marathon and was struck by his incredible spirit. To take on endurance challenges in places like The Poles, Himalaya and Gobi Desert requires great courage and mental strength. The fact that Mark completes these adventures after losing the use of his eyes and now his legs makes him truly remarkable.

Mark was a speaker at National Geographic’s Extreme Explorers dinner in Davos in January 2016. His personal story and insights were incredibly powerful, and clearly had a profound impact on everyone in the room. He embodies the spirit, resilience and determination that are the hallmarks of what it means to be an explorer.
