Dan Klein, founder of the My 3:59 movement
Dan Klein is a writer and speaker who began the My3:59 movement with the dunk of a basketball. My3:59 represents a mentality on how to approach life. It’s a nod to Roger Bannister who was the first person to run a mile in under 4 minutes at a time that it was accepted “knowledge” that it could not be done. To endure. To overcome. To achieve the impossible.
Dan started this movement just after his 42nd birthday but much more meaningful than his age was it occurred 7 months after his final cancer treatment. “After going through everything cancer puts you through – physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually – I came away from cancer with a different perspective on life. A very different perspective on what I can and what I can’t do.”
Dan's message of living every day and giving everything you have to achieve your impossible in order to become the person we are called to be continues to inspire and motivate others to achieve their own My3:59.
