1378124_529667250448071_1181653891_nGTC customer, Fiona Oakes, is on her way home after completing her 7 Continent and Polar Ice Cap Marathon Challenge and should feel extremely proud as she has broken three world records in the process!

She not only broke the world record for the fastest time to complete the 7 continent marathon challenge, she also completed a marathon at the North Pole and is planning to run another at the South Pole! She is hoping to raise funds and awareness for Veganism, a cause that is very close to her heart, and to become the first vegan woman to complete these marathon challenges.

Fiona took an Iridium 9555 with her on her trip and it allowed her to keep in touch throughout her trip. The Iridium 9555 is one of the most reliable satellite phones available on the market, taking full advantage of the Iridium’s truly global coverage. The 9555 is water, shock, and dust resistant, offering the perfect solution for Fiona to use in rugged outdoor environments. You can buy yours here.
