About this title
Join Zeke O’Connor as he takes you through the many journeys he has travelled over the past six decades, first as a remarkably successful athelete (yes, it’s the Zeke O’Connor who scored the winning touchdown with the Toronto Argonauts in 1952), then as a friend and companion to Sir Edmund Hillary as the two towering men scaled Mount Everest, and finally to the most amazing journeys of all. As the founding President of The Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation, there is no one better equipped than Zeke O’Connor to tell of how this foundation enabled the Nepalese Sherpas to build their own 13 medical clinics and 17 schools over the past few decades, to establish literacy programs for women, and to spearhead a reforestation project that saw the planting of over 2 million seedlings over a 30-year span. Each journey described in this unique memoir is told with grace and humility. It is a celebration of the human spirit and lives well lived.About the Author:
Born in New York City and educated at Notre Dame and Columbia Universities, Zeke O’Connor moved to Canada to play pro football for the Toronto Argonauts, helping the Argos secure the 1952 Grey Cup by catching the winning touchdown. Twenty years later, Zeke met Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to conquer Mount Everest, with whom he travelled for decades while on merchandising assignments with Sears Canada. Their experiences in Nepal inspired Zeke to establish the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation of Canada, which has since raised millions to build much-needed infrastructures related to health, education and the environment. His humanitarian journey with the Sherpas of Nepal continues to be one of his most rewarding life experiences.
