In January 2016, O'Brady began the Explorers Grand Slam, an adventure challenge to climb the Seven Summits, the highest mountains on each of the seven continents, and reach the North and South Pole by covering the last degree of latitude on skis. An attempt to break the world record for speed by competing the challenge in less than six months, O'Brady's goal was to raise $1 million to combat childhood obesity. Donations were collected through O'Brady's Beyond 7/2 project to benefit the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a non-profit founded by the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation. O'Brady completed the Explorers Grand Slam on May 27, 2016, when he reached the summit of Denali, in Alaska. From start to finish, he completed the Grand Slam in 139 days, a new world record for the shortest time.
