At two years old, Hadley began suffering from hundreds of seizures a day. After months in Great Ormond Street Hospital in London and exhausting every possible treatment, Hadley’s parents were informed that he had simply reached his “endurance limits” and that they should prepare for his inevitable and imminent death. Hadley, on the other hand, had other ideas. He defied the odds to survive and lives a happy and fulfilling life at home with his family.
Hadley’s father, Darren, founded Endurance Limits to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital as thanks for the care his son received.
Erin and Ryan become close friends with the Endurance Limits team while competing with them in the Jungle Marathon of 2014. Inspired by the courage of Hadley and the many athletes that have supported the Endurance Limits Adventure Racing Team, Erin and Ryan have decided to raise awareness and much needed funding for several well-respected children’s hospitals across the United States.
