There is a place deep in the Arctic where man has yet to reach. This place is at the very centre of the Arctic Ocean, the furthest point from any land mass; it is known as the Arctic Pole of Inaccessibility. Justin Miles has joined a team to get there – to be the very first humans to ever walk to the Arctic Pole of Inaccessibility.
In September 2010 I cycled from Nelsons Column in London to the Eiffel Tower in Paris to raise funds for the Children’s Trust and promote the essential work that they do to help children who have suffered a traumatic brain injury and their families.
Justin’s first polar goal was to be the first man to trek unsupported from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back. Two years ago, the expedition failed, but the challenge isn’t over. Follow progress as Justin rebuilds the Antarctic Challenge
Learning to walk and talk again at the age of 26 really is life changing stuff. I can’t remember the car accident that left me with brain injuries, but learning to make my body and mind ‘work’ again taught me lessons that I will never forget; lessons that are transferable to every walk of life from the sports field to the boardroom.
