It’s not everyday you wake up knowing,
“This is a day I will remember for the rest of my life.”
Derived from determination, vision and purpose, Dan Klein created the My 3:59 movement based off of Roger Bannister’s four-minute mile and achieving the impossibles in our lives. Through this movement, the nonprofit Your 3:59 was created as a mission to combine adventure with philanthropy.
What the My 3:59 Nation loves about R2R and the Grand Canyon is that it is a tremendous metaphor for life. It’s a beautiful place that is full of ups and downs, time and pressure, and risks and rewards. It has been carved out of solid rock mostly by water which is the same thing that makes up the majority of you and me. By getting up everyday and working on the task at hand, you move forward with purpose to your ultimate destination, whether that be the next rim or to the next point in your life.
Over the last several years, My 3:59 has been taking teams to the Grand Canyon to experience not only its beauty but to learn from the canyon – from training, to preparing, to hiking, to celebrating.
