Ben Pobjoy is an avid walker that is passionate about converting physical movement into social movement. In January 2015, he made a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight by walking 2015 kms that year. He ended up walking more than 5,800 kms and losing 100 lbs. Along the way, he began distributing homemade sandwiches to in-need people on the streets; feeding over 1,000 people on his walks. Over the course of 2016 and 2017, Pobjoy began to use solo self-organized ultra marathons to fundraise tens of thousands of dollars for community causes; from Toronto all the way to Tokyo. In 2018, he launched a free community initiative called Democratic Exercise to pair walking with conversations among strangers to create greater empathy among people from different walks of life. Pobjoy has gained attention for his many movement-focused initiatives; appearing in national ad campaigns, earning profiles in major newspapers and news sites, speaking on well-known podcasts and writing forewords for award-winning books. Pobjoy continues to move daily, and has surpassed 23,000+ kms of tracked walks which he enjoys doing around the world.
