“A story of courage, determination and hope.”
-The Daily Telegraph.
Mark Pollock is that catalyst. Unbroken by blindness in 1998, Mark went on to compete in ultra endurance races across deserts, mountains, and the polar ice caps including being the first blind person to race to the South Pole. He holds two degrees, one from Trinity College Dublin and other from The Smurfit Business School.
In 2010 Mark was left paralysed after falling from a second story window. He is now exploring the frontiers of spinal cord injury recovery combining an innovative electrical stimulator over his spinal cord and a drug super-charging his nervous system, whilst walking hundreds of thousands of steps as the world’s leading test pilot of Ekso Bionics robotic legs.
Through the Mark Pollock Trust (www.markpollocktrust.org), Mark is on a mission to find and connect people around the world to fast-track a cure for paralysis. Mark helps people achieve more than they thought possible.
Selected by the World Economic Forum as a Young Global Leader, Mark is on the Board of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation (USA) and is a Wings for Life Ambassador (UK). He is co-Founder of the global running series called Run in the Dark (www.runinthedark.org).
