Ron Shore is an adventurer, innovator and treasure hunt expert, currently focusing his lifelong experience and passion into his latest initiative, The World’s Greatest Treasure Hunt™: Quest for the Golden Eagle to fund breast cancer research. In a four year period, fifteen of Ron's family members and close personal friends died, including his mother, brother and sister-in-law. During the same period of time, Ron himself suffered a broken neck and severe concussion in a car accident involving a drunk driver. All of these events have strengthened his resolve to make a significant impact on the world and the people around him.
So how does an individual try and make a difference in a busy world? As an entrepreneur, Ron knew he had another choice to make. He could choose to do nothing and try to live a very happy and contented life for himself. Or he could choose to make his life, and everything he does, count for something greater. He realized if someone had taken the steps years ago to fund cancer research in the same way he is proposing to do now, his sister-in-law may still be alive. He hopes that what is achieved through The World’s Greatest Treasure Hunt™, will result in a cure and prevent other families from going through the devastating effect of losing a loved one far too soon.
Ron Shore is no stranger to taking chances or achieving dreams. He’s climbed Mount Kilimanjaro; received an MBA from UBC - emphasis in marketing and a master's thesis on treasure hunting; cycled across Canada and even received NASCAR training in Las Vegas. His endeavors have not gone unnoticed - in 2002 Ron received Her Majesty the Queen's Jubilee medal for outstanding service to the nation. A former Navy Officer and now prominent businessman and entrepreneur, Ron is currently the president of a telecommunications company.
