2 Adventures, 2 Chances to Help!

Getting fit and ready, it’s all in the preparation!  I need your help in reaching my goal.  Before my South Pole Quest I am embarking on 12 day preparation trek and training in Antarctica, the coldest, highest desert on the planet!

The 12 day guided trek across Antarctica will take place this December and will provide me with invaluable experience and training for my next challenge, a grueling  solo trek over  53 days in the South Pole.

I am seeking the support of a single sponsor, or a select group of sponsors to cover the costs of basecamp/rescue services, insurance flights, meals and equipment.

 I am seeking to raise £24,000

PLEASE HELP  – DONATE TO ONE ADVENTURE OR BOTH, ONCE IS ENOUGH, BUT TWICE IS ALWAYS NICEST.


I have a had a great summer talking to schools and communities about my exploring activities.
In June, and again in July I spoke to youngsters at Bsix College in Hackney and I was the keynote speaker at City Academy Southwark awards day. I went to Cumberland School in Newham for their awards day too, and gave an address, and at the end of July I attended “An evening with Dwayne Fields” at Zen in Derby. I have met some great people along the way and I have been inspired myself by the enthusiasm of all the young people I have met. Keep it up!

 

I’m still hard at work getting myself ready for my journey to the South Pole later this year. I have four months to prepare so I more focused on my strength and conditioning than ever. Here’s a sneak peak at me in the gym.

             

It’s six months to go and Im starting to take my training more seriously now. Doing my insanity work outs, and my daily walks, need to get my weight to 13.5 stones and get stronger before the walk. Doing around 20 hours a week but will probably have to double that by November. Weather’s better so that helps (at least it’s stopped snowing!). Here’s a couple of photos of my latest training session…
