About the Author:

Author, Multi Guinness World Record holder and international keynote speaker, Martin Parnell enjoys helping ordinary people achieve extraordinary accomplishments – ones that often appear unimaginable!

During a four-month cycling trip through Africa in 2005, Martin Parnell was struck by the transformative power of sport to change lives. Five years later the 55 year-old dedicated a year of his life to run to raise funds for the charity, Right To Play, an international humanitarian organization that reaches out to disadvantaged children around the world.

Martin gives honest and often humorous insight into why an ordinary person would attempt to do something extraordinary in pursuit of their goal to make the world a better place.

He is a member of the Rotary Club of Cochrane and was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in October 2012.
