Who is Wim Hof?
Wim Hof (born 20 April 1959), also known as The Iceman, is a Dutch motivational speaker and extreme athlete noted for his ability to withstand freezing temperatures. Wim has set Guinness World Records for swimming under ice and prolonged full-body contact with ice,
and previously held the record for a barefoot half marathon on ice and snow.

Every 40 seconds someone attempts to take their own life. Every 40 seconds. More than 800,000 of us take their own lives every year.

Wim says:
21 years ago.. my wife took her life when she jumped from the 8th floor down. I was left alone with four kids to bring up. I had lost the love of my life. This beautiful soul who I was with for 15 years. I was not only heartbroken but deeply deeply depressed. Powerless, numb and in great despair. My kids made me survive but the cold healed me..

We do not need to be powerless in the face of depression, fear, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, Bipolar, or schizophrenia.

#FREEZEHOF is an opportunity for us all to come together.
