7 Peaks, 2 Poles, 1 Dream. A brave mission for an extraordinary cause. The journey begins January 2016.
Colin O'Brady, American professional triathlete, will set out an inspirational endurance expedition in support of childhood health. In under 6 months, Colin aims to set a mountaineering world record, becoming the fastest person in history to complete the Explorers Grand Slam; climbing the world's Seven Summits (the tallest mountain on each of the seven continents) and venturing to both the North and South Poles in uninterrupted succession.
The goal: Beyond 7/2 aims to inspire kids and adults to make healthy life choices through food, fitness and goal setting, and raise $1 million to benefit the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and their work.

“Bite Size” is a feature documentary that takes an intimate look at the obesity epidemic through the eyes of the children most at risk. They show us that losing weight is not just about changing the number on the scale but also about asking ourselves who we are and what we want to become.
The film presents a new perspective on this critical issue that transcends the data and statistics we hear every day, asking us to consider the consequences of our actions and the legacy that we intend to leave for our children.
