Since then, he’s gone on to inspire millions of people around the world by completing jaw-dropping journeys, including running across the Sahara, Atacama, Gobi, and Patagonian deserts. He is also the he founder of the non-profit impossible2Possible (i2P), which uses adventure based learning programs to educate and empower young people when it comes to global issues. On stage, Ray takes audiences through his tremendous personal story to show how individuals and organizations can undergo incredible change to break through limits and achieve incredible success.
