We offer a network of care to life limited & life threatened children

Story

I am crossing Greenland on skis in April 2016 pulling a sledge weighing up to 100Kg

The total distance is 540 Km and may take up to 34 days climbing up to nearly 10,000 feet.

We will be sleeping in tents where outside temperatures may drop to -35 deg C.

At 66 years old this will be the challenge of my life but nowhere near the challenge that parents face every day with life-threatened children.
