Well, I actually got quite a bit of interest from an exciting range of athletes and have finally picked one. Specifically, Derek Redmond.
That means our team of three athletes is now complete as follows:
- Paralympian – Marc Woods (Swimmer)
- Special Olympics Athlete – Declan Kerry (Footballer)
- Olympian – Derek Redmond (Sprinter)
You can read more about these athletes, the project and our progress at the new website I’ve created – www.2012inspire.com
As you’ll see, our focus is getting sponsors onboard who share our values and will help us get to the South Pole and deliver our messages.
I believe word of mouth is important. If you could help me to spread the word about what I think will be a really exciting project with a lot of potential interest outside of the small expedition-sphere, then I would be greatly appreciative.
