OUTSOURCE UK SPONSORS NORTH POLE EXPEDITION
Outsource UK, one of the leading IT recruitment agencies, is sponsoring Minna Halse on her 360 nautical mile expedition to the North Pole this March.
Minna will be trekking and skiing her way from Resolute Bay in Canada across the frozen seas to the North Pole to raise money for the charity, Teen Challenge UK.
The route will take Minna and her group between various islands in the high Canadian arctic, past Polar Bear Pass before moving north to the final destination, Deer Bay of Ellef Ringnes Island. The team will be unsupported on their venture and will be carrying all the kit and food needed to survive -40 Celsius temperatures.
The team of 12 will be carrying 12 sledges, four tents, bedding and food to keep them fully energised on their 30-day journey.
Paul Jameson, Managing Director of Outsource UK, comments:
It is great to see such passion and commitment and all for a worthy cause. Minna and her friends have spent their weekends training, packing food and equipment and even undergoing shotgun training as protection in case polar bears get too close for comfort! With just a few weeks to go, we wish the team the best of luck and look forward to seeing the pictures!
