On Tuesday 21 January 2014 a Welcome Home press conference for the Walking With The Wounded Virgin Money South Pole Allied Challenge will be held at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London. Team Glenfiddich will be attending as well as expedition Patron Prince Harry, and Team Commonwealth‘s honorary member Dominic West.
The Walking With The Wounded Virgin Money South Pole Allied Challenge 2013 concluded on Friday 13 December, when three teams of wounded servicemen and women successfully reached the South Pole after crossing 200km of Antarctic plateau.
Team Glenfiddich (UK), Team Soldier On (Commonwealth) and Team Noom Coach (US) pushed to their physical and mental limits throughout a gruelling 13 days on the ice, and the Virgin Money South Pole Allied Challenge was not without its difficulties. This prompted Expedition Director and Team Noom Coach mentor, Edward Parker, to make changes and ultimately remove the race element of the trek to ensure all the three teams could join together and safely reach the South Pole, united as one.
You can still make a donation to coronate this legendary expedition and help us reach our fundraising target of £150,000, all money raised will go to Walking With The Wounded to help us make a difference in the lives of our wounded servicemen and women.
