This is my first fundraising challenge, and my first expedition – it is an opportunity that combines two things I have always wanted to do, and in a place I have always wanted to experience. So why has it taken me so long to sign up to a charity challenge? Well, I am able to do this now thanks to the support of many people around me in helping me overcome depression, anxiety, and fear of flying, failure, and the unknown.
You can read my story, donate, and find out more about the charity I am supporting on my Just Giving page.
On this challenge I will be trekking for an average of 7 hours a day in sub zero temperatures. It will push me mentally and physically, and take me well outside some of my most cherished and well-worn comfort zones. It will also be an absolutely amazing experience in a fabulously unique landscape and I am hugely grateful for any support you are happy to give to help me achieve this.
