The New District Governor
It is my honour to be your DG for the coming 2021 – 2022 Rotary year. A little about myself: In 2010, following a 25-year mining career, I started my "Quests for Kids" initiative. Over the next five years, I completed 10 "Quests". These included running 250 marathons in one year, setting five Guinness World Records in endurance events and summiting Mount Kilimanjaro in 21 hours. At the end of 2014, $1.3m was raised for the humanitarian organization Right To Play and 27,000 children had been given the gift of hope. In my work life, I am a professional speaker and author and have published three books including “THE SECRET MARATHON-Empowering women and girls in Afghanistan through sport”. I am a member of the Rotary Club of Cochrane, married to Sue, and have three children, Kyle, Calum and Kristina and three grandchildren, Autumn, Nathan and Matthew.
