Zeke has had more than his share of successful careers – professional football player for the Toronto Argonauts and later a Canadian Football League commentator, then national merchandise manager for Sears Canada sporting goods. It was through his work with Sears that Zeke met Sir Edmund Hillary, eventually establishing The Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation of Canada which has raised millions to build infrastructures related to health, education, and the environment in Nepal. Zeke and Sir Edmund had an incredible bond which continues in the work of the Foundation. It was my pleasure to meet both Zeke and Sir Edmund during several fund raisers. Proceeds from the sale of this book benefit the Foundation.
