Dubai-based adventurer Adrian Hayes is somewhat of a prodigy; the Knight Rider of UAE exploration. In just 19 months, Hayes conquered the 8,950-metre ascent of Mount Everest, trekked 1,130km across the Antarctic continent to the South Pole and 850km from northern Canada across the Arctic Ocean to the North Pole. Why, you ask? Well on May 16 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, he’ll tell you, as he hosts A Night at the Three Poles, recounting his three adventures. He is the fastest person and only the 15th in history to overcome these three natural extremes.The charity dinner is also aiming to raise awareness for the Children’s Hope Foundation and Friends of Cancer Patients.
Tickets are priced at Dhs325 inclusive of a buffet dinner and all beverages, and are available from the ITP ticket line (www.timouttickets.com) or alternatively from Wolfi’s Bike Shop on Sheikh Zayed Road.
