Karl Alvarez, Medical Director at Occupational Health Services, wellbeing advocate, charity fundraiser, runner, skydiver and more (if that's even possible) joined Selwyn Figueras and Catherine Knock in the Hassans' media studio to share his reasoning and motivation in attempting to be the first person EVER to complete all five Beyond The Ultimate - The Global Race Series Ultras within one year.
He is taking on this enormous challenge to raise awareness about mental health and children with special needs, all donations (scroll for the JustGiving link) will be shared between local charities GibSams and SNAG (Special Needs Action Group).
Hassans couldn't be prouder to be sponsoring Karl as he takes on the fourth of five Ultras, heading for Peru today to start the Jungle Ultra in the Manu National Park in Peru on Wednesday 4th June.
Karl completed the Savannah in Kenya in September last year, the Desert in the Namib Desert in November and the Ice Ultra in Sweden in February. He will then tackle the final Ultra in the Tan Shan Mountains at the end of July.
Please take a listen, it's inspiring stuff, and if you can also support Karl, please do so by donating here:
We wish you a great race Karl and look forward to welcoming you back in a few weeks.
