No man — or woman — is an island. A cliche, to be sure. But Robyn Benincasa has dedicated her life to the concept, and she’s bringing what she’s learned to Juneau.
Benincasa, a career firefighter and professional adventure racer, is the first of two upcoming speakers for the Glacier Valley Rotary Club’s Pillars of America speaker series. Adventure races are extreme sporting events that span hundreds of miles and require teams of four or five to move and work together to cross the terrain — be it by foot, bike or boat.
