My story

[p]After the successful completion of his North Pole challenge in 2017, Oakland International Group Chief Executive Dean Attwell, is now in training to undertake his next challenge, the South Pole in January 2020. It begins with a 14 hour flight to Punta Arenas where he will spend 2 days checking his kit, reviewing the expedition procedure and undertaking any final preparations before flying to the Antarctica. The flight will last 4.5 hours and will fly across the historic Drake Passage to the Antarctic continent. Once arrived Dean and the group will move onto the Union Glacier basecamp where they will spend a day acclimatizing before the drop off at 89 degrees south latitude. They will then make their way across the frozen Antarctic landscape towards the South Pole skiing 6-10 hours a day experiencing altitude of approximately 3,100M, arriving at the South Pole on the 14th January 2020. [/p][p][br][/p][p]The trip is being 100% self-funded so all money raised from Dean’s South Pole Expedition will be to directly support a local charity called Molly Olly’s Wishes. The charity supports children with terminal or life threatening illnesses and their families to help with their emotional wellbeing. They grant individual wishes and donate therapeutic toys and books to both children directly and to hospitals throughout the UK. To find out more about Molly Olly’s Wishes please visit their website: [url=https://www.mollyolly.co.uk/]https://www.mollyolly.co.uk/[/url][/p][p]Any donation no matter how small will be appreciated and Dean will post regular updates so you can see how his trek to the South Pole is going.[/p]
