Jamie “Mocrazy” and the Utah Yurt Trip
Olympic skier Jamie, nicknamed “Mocrazy”, has always been passionate about skiing. From a young age, her life has been paced by competition events. She always thought that nothing was impossible, that all her dreams were achievable. That made her want to organize the Utah Yurt Trip, on skis, with her best friends Amy, Kyle and Danny, and her companion Reggie, to take advantage of the new freedom that was offered to her! Today, she shares her No Ordinary experience by spreading a message of motivation and positive attitude, in her own image: a sparkling, daring young girl!

Edgar & Aurélien at the Aquitain Challenge
Committed to protecting nature and passionate about surfing, Edgar and Aurélien traveled 260 km on foot along the Atlantic coast of France last summer. From the beaches of Le Verdon‑sur‑M
er to those of Anglet, they pulled carts in the sand for a month to protect nature. A year ago, the two friends created their own association: 4P Shore and Seas, which combines their passion for surfing, their commitment to the environment, and their scientific knowledge. Their goal is to participate in the cleanup of the world's coastlines while raising awareness among populations by organizing waste collection events on beaches.
This last summer, they were back in the field for a second edition, aiming to collect data on the evolution of the environmental situation, year after year. They are also looking to export the concept internationally.

Nicolas Maréchal at the Marathon des Sables
Nicolas Maréchal ran the 2018 Marathon des Sables. Two hundred fifty kilometers across the south Saharan desert, six stages (between 30 and 80 km per day) in total autonomy. He was also motivated to run for another good reason: the “Cercle des Amis Cambodgiens”, an association which helps people in need in Cambodia by giving them free medical equipment, food, and education. Nicolas managed to collect 2 500€ to support this Cambodian project and finished the marathon in 38h48'30''. Today, he reflects on his participation and the goal he has achieved.
