“Life is the real adventure”.”
Danny Bent was voted one of the 100 happiest people in the UK, and one of the 50 most inspirational people in London. He is an award winning author and journalist, Guinness World Record holder, and celebrated adventurer and community leader.
Motivating people to be the best version of themselves is Danny’s passion and trade. Encouraging them to do more, give more and live more. Living dreams, facing fears, and loving themselves, others and life with abandon are his tool kit.
“Two miles out, Nicole Reis, whose first Boston Marathon was halted at mile 25.8, took the baton. Coming up Boylston, she handed the baton to her father, John Odom, who suffered serious leg injuries in the bombings, and pushed him in his wheelchair across the finish line. Then came the celebration as runners reclaimed Boylston Street.”
− Nick Weldon, Runner’s World (heroes of running)
“Bent, who emerged as the fun-loving imp of the relay, told the crowd that he and the other organizers had no idea what to expect when they started.”
− Melanie Eversley, USA Today
“Mr. Bent has made it his life’s purpose to get his heart and soul behind the causes he believes in, forgoing sleep, comfort, and financial success to inspire people to take even small steps to bridge self-imposed or societal divides and show their compassion for others.”
− Jenna Fisher, CS Monitor
“Participants (of One Run For Boston) traded inspirational links about Marathon victims, photos of Miles, tips for media outreach, and their own running jokes (mostly involving Danny Bent’s minuscule pair of red shorts).”
− Eric Moskovitz, The Boston Globe
