About the author
Steve Pitt is a children's author and magazine writer whose non-fiction book Rain Tonight: A Tale of Hurricane Hazel (Tundra) was shortlisted for the Silver Birch Award. Ray Zahab continues to race, as well as speak around the world. He is a member of the board of directors of Ryan's Well Foundation, a representative of Spread the Net, and founder of impossible2Possible.
Ray Zahab was always the last to be picked for team games. Eventually, he quit trying and as he got older, he took up smoking and drinking. But after his grandfather and uncle died, and his father suffered a stroke, Ray realized he had to take charge of his life.
Ray gave up his destructive habits and started looking for new challenges. When he read about the 160-km Yukon ultramarathon, he knew he had to give it a try. Everyone thought he was crazy. Ray had never even run in a regular marathon.
One ultramarathon quickly led to another and Ray now combines his zeal for the race with a passion for fundraising.
