Weʼre raising £10,000 to Ski to the South Pole from Union Glacier via Constellation Inlet - A never done route before. #likeagirl
Don't have time to donate right now?
This a new page due to the previous one expiring but rest assured that the funds will carry over. In supporting the Antarctic Fire Angels expedition we are also passing on funds to the Fire Fighters Charity.
For every girl and young woman who's ever been told they can't participate because of their gender... We want to inspire them to find their courage, change the narrative of what it means to be a girl, and achieve great things far beyond what their own as well as others expectations.
We started as amateurs, trained for nearly 4 years, learnt to ski, survive and pull everything we need to stay alive in that time. Now, we are polar explorers, embarking on a journey that proves you're not too young or old to try new and exciting things.
We are skiing 1,230km from to the South Pole starting in November 2023 and finishing in January 2024. This journey will be unassisted and supported, pulling 80+kg pulks in temperatures as low as -50c with possible wind speeds of over 60mph in approximately 45 days. That's more than 25km every day.
