He first got the idea for the project two years ago, but the need to push himself and encourage people to lead a healthy life goes back to 2008.
While on a backpacking trip in Thailand, O’Brady was severely injured in a fire. Doctors told him the burns covered 25 percent of his body and he might never walk again.

Sponsorship offers came the same day, and O’Brady quit his job in finance, going on to race in 25 countries on six continents.
“I got to this point where I thought, ‘This is amazing, but I want to do something more than push my body,’” he said.
