DreamsLike any superhero with big dreams, Adventureman has a head bursting full of ideas! If they’re posted here then, in his words, ‘once they’re out in the world, I’ll feel like there’s no turning back!’
Renowned for his physically-exhausting challenges, Jamie has written a few here he’d love to attempt – and finish!
6,000 mile solo run across America.
6,000 miles. 230 marathons. That’s a marathon most days, with Jamie running up to 50 miles some days. A $1 million fundraising target for sick kids. Jamie aims to finish this challenge by April 2019.
Big Dad Swim.
A three-month cold-water swimming adventure with Jamie’s Dad, who is among an elite group of Ice Mile swimmers around the world.
Cycle Around the World
Jamie would like to attempt an 18,000-mile round-the-world cycle with his partner-in-crime and love, Anna McNuff. Ideally with an adventure kid or two!
Run Around Britain.
A little closer to home, Jamie would like to run, zig zagging through Britain and follow some of the footsteps of his friend, Wayne Russell, whilst shining the light on all the Superhero Foundation families around the country.
Adventureman: Anyone Can Be a Superhero, published in 2017, charted Jamie’s journey from hospital-bound sick kid to a man running all 5,000 miles across Canada. It became a #1 best-selling travel book on Amazon, and achieved worldwide acclaim.
Jamie has many other books he’d like to write, including:
- A book charting the US run he’s currently on and every adventure thereafter, creating a series of inspirational books
- A children’s book series, inspiring children with the message that anyone can, indeed, be a superhero, no matter your starting place in life
- A book about fundraising – having helped to raise a huge amount of money through both his charity and personal efforts, Jamie knows what it takes to inspire both online and offline communities to support charitable efforts. He’d love to impart this to help others do the same
Jamie makes a living as a motivational speaker. He would like to inspire and perhaps change the mindsets of 100 million people in his lifetime – a big dream, but he’s already spoken to over 200,000 people, so he’s well on his way!
Jamie’s fundamental dream is that no sick child should ever go without treatment or medical support, anywhere in the world. Whether a matter of not being able to afford or access treatment, this is the big one – the one that keeps him up at night.
To push towards this dream, Jamie is going to expand Superhero Foundation’s crowdfunding ability internationally – first into Canada, then America and so on. As well as building a Superhero HQ in his hometown, Gloucester, and moving this across the world, building a community of superheroes that will inspire and help the world.
