There are 2 options: 1) Fear & 2) Mastery
I wanted to take a moment to shed some light on how great Ben is.
He is going to kill me for making this public but I think his drive, selflessness and heart needs to be amplified!
On April 26th, Ben will challenging one of the highest peaks in all of Peru to raise money for a great cause...he will be charging up all 6300M of Rainbow Mountian with the vigor and gumption of a true titan. Every step he takes, every dollar we raise will get us closer to finding a cure for something that has touched us all.
I for one, am inspired and in awe of Ben's ability to put others first and commit to trekking up (and down) the 10K meter trail... Most westerners are offered a donkey for the ride down as the trek is steep and arduous...
To this offer, Ben simply responded with, 'Cancer is an up hill battle and so is Rainbow Mountian. Game on.'
PS. It is not lost on me that Ben is colorblind. If this is not the truest act of ultruism, I don't know what is.
