South Pole 2013: Join The Team

Walking With The Wounded is looking for injured servicemen and women to take part in an expedition to the South Pole.

Following the huge successes of the North Pole 2011 and Everest 2012 expeditions we are going south.

The South Pole 2013 will be our largest expedition to date. The Walking With The Wounded South Pole 2013 expedition, due to take place in November and December 2013, will see a team of wounded men and women overcome not only one of the most inhospitable landscapes in the world, but also their own life-changing injuries.

This expedition is open to any individual (male or female) injured during the course of operations while serving in the British Armed Forces. Injuries sustained can be both physical and cognitive. If you, or anyone you know is interested then please get in touch via the application form linked below.

An independent production company will follow the expedition from the initial selection. ITV has already committed to a series of 4 x 1hour programmes in the UK. This is a guaranteed audience in excess of 20m prime-time UK households alone.

To find out more information and to apply please read and complete the Walking With The Wounded Allied South Pole 2013 Challenge Application Form.

The aim of the expedition is for Walking With The Wounded to raise further awareness of our wounded, injured and sick by us being able to tell the stories of those involved. As a result of this awareness we aim to raise money to fund rehabilitation programmes for the wounded community. Details of the schemes we fund can be found by clicking here.
