Charities - HDA & Mind
My primary motivation for skiing to the Geographic North and South Poles in 2009 is to raise awareness and money for two charities that are related to illnesses that have profoundly affected members of my immediate family over recent years;- Mind and the Huntington's Disease Association.
My Chosen Charities
The Huntington's Disease Association (HDA), supports those affected by Huntington's Disease (HD), their families and their carers. It also funds research into treatments for HD and, ultimately, a cure.
My aim is to raise in excess of £100,000 in total over the course of my twin polar challenges. Fund raising events are planned for the Summer, including an auction and a sponsored head shave of a well known celebrity.
Details of all future fund raising events will be posted on this website in due course.
