The renowned South African adventurer David Grier is not someone to rest on his laurels. He has run the length of the Great Wall of China, run a smile round the coastline of South Africa, paddled from Mozambique to Madagascar and then run the length of that island. He went on to run the length of Great Britain, run across Cuba and, in this book, traversed India. He does all this for the charity Cipla Miles for Smiles, which performs life-changing surgery on kids with cleft palates. A former chef, Grier also co-authored The Real Meal Revolution, a bestselling, record-breaking book that endorses low-carb, high-fat eating – an approach he uses to fuel his endurance running.
David is a trustee and ambassador for the ‘ Cipla Miles for Smiles Foundation’, raising funds through adventure for Operation Smile, South Africa, who perform corrective surgery on children born with cleft lips and palates.
