Tassy Fils-Aime is an inspiration – having survived a deadly facial tumor and one of the worst catastrophe’s the Western Hemisphere has ever seen in the Haitian Earthquake, Fils-Aime is not one to back down in the face of adversity.

Years later – after a team of compassionate doctors banded together to remove Fils-Aime’s tumor – the young Haitian man decided to challenge himself by becoming the first man to complete a grueling run across the entire length of his home country.

And now, he’s doing it again, opening up the challenge to the public in the first-ever organized, 240-mile ultra-marathon spanning across all of Haiti, inspiring others to join in his mission to end poverty.

Further is the story of this amazing feat – see the full video below in all its glory.
