Dr Sinead Kane, a lawyer, mediator, Ph.D. and accomplished ultra runner and two-time Guinness World Record holder is the guest speaker at Network Ireland Limerick’s March event taking place in Limerick on Wednesday 25th March at the Clayton Hotel. In telling her story, Dr Kane will share her insights on how to overcome adversity and build resilience, thereby creating a mindset for success.
Dr Sinead Kane is a visually impaired athlete and qualified lawyer who holds a double PhD doctorate and is a double Guinness World Record holder for the furthest distance for a female on a treadmill in 12 hours and for being the first blind person to complete a marathon on each of the seven continents in less than seven days. She has forged a career as one of Ireland's best ultra runners despite having less than 5% vision and having only begun running in 2012.
Fiercely determined since a young age, Dr Kane said, “I think a perception people have is people with blindness and disabilities can’t do things. Throughout my life, I’ve always strived to achieve things a fully sighted person hasn’t.”
Petrina Hayes, President of Network Ireland Limerick, said, “Every day we face challenges; some small and some so big they may seem insurmountable, but quite often a solution can be found if we adapt or alter our mindset. I’m delighted Dr Kane will be joining us and sharing her tips on how to create a mindset for success. She has confronted so many challenges in life; it is mind-blowing what she has achieved to date.”
