In April 2011 an expedition will embark on a journey to the Geographical North Pole unaided. Amongst this group will be military servicemen who have been wounded in the line of duty and subsequently have lost limbs to amputation. This is a brave undertaking by people who have had their lives irreversibly changed whilst serving their country. They now seek to rebuild their lives and to inspire and help others to follow their lead as they set out to prove that injuries and amputations need not be a barrier to endeavour and achievement.
‘Walking with the Wounded’ is a unique and truly special expedition that will see wounded servicemen from our Armed Forces trek to the Geographical North Pole unaided. In doing so they will enter the record books as the first amputees to reach this remote destination.
