The Endurance Series

Endurance. For us, endurance speaks to the spirit needed to overcome adversity.  Endurance is the determination needed to not only succeed but to thrive in life. The endurance series is our way of inspiring our community through speaker-centered events that focus on stories of endurance, perseverance and overcoming fear.

Some photographs encapsulate extraordinary stories of endurance and fortitude. A striking example is the above image of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s crew of the Endurance playing football while stranded on an iceberg in the Antarctic in 1915 . They were trapped for an astonishing 497 days.
