Mark Pollock Inspires Students at KH

 Today was truly inspiring as we welcomed back Mark Pollock to KH!

Students and teachers gathered to hear about Mark’s incredible journey, from catastrophe to recovery. 

Mark’s story is nothing short of remarkable. He went from being an adventure athlete, conquering ultra-endurance races in deserts, mountains, and even racing to the South Pole as the first blind person. In 2010, life took an unexpected turn when a fall left him paralyzed, breaking his back and altering his life forever. But here’s the incredible part: Mark didn’t let adversity define him. 

Today, he embarks on a new expedition, seeking to cure paralysis in our lifetime by exploring the merging point of humanity and technology. It’s a story of resilience, leadership, motivation, and pushing boundaries. 

We had the privilege of hearing Mark’s insights on: 

  • Adversity & Challenges: Maintaining a Resilient Mindset Under Pressure 
  • Leadership & Motivation: Leading Through a Crisis and Developing Intrinsic Motivation to Move Forward 
  • Mindset & Performance: Challenging Expectations to Perform at a Higher Level 
  • Collaboration & Teamwork: Creating & Motivating Dispersed Teams Across Disciplines & Geographies 
  • Human Enhancement: Exploring the Intersection Where Humans & Technology Collide in the 4th Industrial Revolution

Our students had the opportunity to engage with Mark, asking questions and learning from his incredible journey. 

KH proudly supports the global “Run In The Dark” initiative, and today’s event truly embodied the spirit of pushing boundaries and making a positive impact on the world.
