René Kujan - Ultraběžec - Věřit v nejlepší, pokoušet se o nemožné.

Maratonec a ultramaratonec, který jde/běží svou cestou. Po absolvování vysoké školy (dvojobor překladatelství-ekonomie) vystudoval ještě uměleckou truhlařinu. Pracuje jako překladatel a novinář. Jako první na světě oběhl na podzim 2012 Island pouze v doprovodu přítelkyně a novorozeného syna. Třicet maratonů za třicet dní. René svými výkony podporuje sport českých vozíčkářů, mezi něž se málem sám zařadil po nezaviněné těžké autonehodě.

[ENGLISH]
René Kujan - Ultrarunner - To believe in the best, to strive for the impossible.

The nearly fourty-year-old René Kujan became famous for his unique charity project, dedicated to promote Prague Sports Club of Wheelchair Users. Run 30: 1 man -- 30 days -- 30 marathons, as the project was called, aimed to have René run around the island of Iceland, which he successfully accomplished in autumn 2012 as the first in the world. With each marathon, he managed to raise at least CZK 1000 for people with disabilties. Kujan came up with the idea for this brave project when doctors said he might never walk again after a car crash. He does not consider himself an athlete but instead refers to himself as a „hobby mover". Kujan also realizes his potential as a translator, journalist and an art joiner.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
