The main reason that the 4 of us are putting ourselves through this madness is to find some really good looking norwegians to kidnap on our way back from the pole! In all seriousness we are attempting to raise as much money as possible for the following cancer charities, UK Cancer research and the Sloane Kettering Memorial foundation.
Team member Chris Jonns tragically lost his father Allan last year to this nasty disease and one of our good friend's sister Christina Prestia is currently fighting breast cancer and being treated by Sloan Kettering. Im sure each and everyone of us knows someone directly who has been affected by this terrible condition and we feel by giving back a bit we can all help in the funding of research to find a cure for a disease that is responsible for 1 in 3 deaths.
You can either donate on line at this website or the US version www.firstgiving.com/np2006, or just give the team cash!
Thanking you in advance - Chris, Gareth, James & Peter. (aka Jonnsie, the Wizard, Samsie and Ted)
(Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Cancer Research UK will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.)
