Fear Of Failure

It Doesn't Compare

When Len Forkas found out his 9-year old son had leukemia, he was scared and he wanted to help. He turned to endurance races to manage his stress and started a nonprofit to help connect kids with cancer Len takes his audience on a 3,000 mile, 11 day solo bike race with his 11 person all volunteer team sharing lessons such as the power of forgiveness and gratitude, knowing your limits and honoring roles.

Mr. Forkas was not only inspirational, but instantly connected with our 100+ attendees. His energetic and thoughtful engagement was noticed and continued to drive a dynamic and positive experience for our team throughout our two day event. He was able to successfully relate his personal experience to our team with ease, humor and humility.
