Ben Saunders

Target Health met and talked with Ben Saunders, who will amaze you with tales and images of his expedition in the Arctic. He was the first person in the world to cross, solo [and unsupported], the Arctic Ocean – that’s a 1,240 mile journey across one of the most challenging climates on the earth. After crossing areas of unprecedented thinning ice and open water – experiencing the effects of global climate change first hand – Ben has begun to raise international awareness on the changes. How does he do it? His answer is an inspiring one: “don’t underestimate what ‘man’ is capable of when we have a strong belief system about our goals and destiny.” Ben Saunders’ solo, journey across the frozen Arctic Ocean shows that the only limits of human potential are what we can dream of achieving.
