Would you give two minutes of your time to help me get to the South Pole?
I have been short-listed for a British Airways ‘Great Briton’ Award. If I get enough votes then they will provide me and my team mates with flights to South America to begin our journey to the Pole.
As you may know, I am organising an expedition to coincide with the London 2012 Olympics. On my team are:
- Olympian Derek Redmond
- Paralympian Marc Woods
- Special Olympics Athlete Declan Kerry
- Polar Adventurer Rosie Stancer
We aim to reach the bottom of the world in early 2012 and wave the British flag in the name of inclusivity, participation and accessibility – all key messages of the London Olympics and ones which I believe to be important. You can read more on our website or just go ahead and vote.
(P.S. My friend Sarah Outen is also on the short list so if you don’t like my idea, vote for her!)
