The From Fire to Ice expedition aims to raise money and awareness for the charity ‘Dan’s Fund For Burns’ from the very people it was set up to support.
The team will live under canvas, travelling on ski, towing sledges of supplies 112 statute miles to the South Pole. Their journey will traverse enormous ice fields and glaciers, finally ascending to the polar plateau at almost 10,000 feet. The wind will always be against them, providing a remorseless minus 50-degree wind-chill. For a novice team, the challenge is huge – but possible.
