Guest Speaker Ray Zahab

Ultra runner, adventurer, and youth advocate.

  • On November 1, 2006, ultra runner Ray Zahab and two friends, Charlie Engle and Kevin Lin, set out on an expedition to cross the Sahara Desert by foot. 111 days and 7,500 kms after leaving the coast of Senegal, Africa they completed their journey by stepping into the Red Sea. The National Geographic film ‘Running The Sahara’ documented their journey and helped raise awareness for the drinking water crisis in North Africa. 
  • In 2008, Ray founded impossible2Possible (i2P), an organization that aims to inspire and educate youth through adventure learning, inclusion and participation in expeditions. 
  • Ray has also found the time to write two books about his life and adventures. Running for My Life published in 2007 and Ray’s second book, geared at youth readers, Running to Extremes, which recently became a National Best-Seller in Canada. He is currently writing his third book.
