Terence Steinberg | United World Challenge
June 11, 2020
Join Tez for a tour of his new ocean rowboat as he prepares to set off in a few days on an epic solo journey! Beginning June of 2020, he will row a 23-foot boat from San Francisco to Hawaii by himself - a 2,500 mile journey that could last up to three months. Called the United World Challenge, it's a collaborative project to inspire a more courageous world and spark new action to clean the oceans. Tez will row straight across the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and send photos, videos and podcast recordings that his media team will use to document the trip and create an interactive map of this neglected ocean zone. Want to follow Tez's journey and learn more about oceans, marine health, and get introduced to computer coding? Great! You're invited to participate in the Challenge's Ocean Classroom Campaign, an open-source educational initiative that will be available free for students and teachers at unitedworldchallenge.org.
Tez Steinberg is an endurance artist whose journey began when he asked himself a simple question: what are my limits? He spent the next ten years competing in Ironman triathlons and ultramarathons up to 145 miles nonstop – and learned that human performance is defined as much by emotion as by chemistry.
