Arctic 4 Abby

CommunityJames Hipkiss

Arctic 4 Abby is a 200km Husky Dog Challenge 145km north of the Arctic Circle in February 2015. I am likely to be exposed to temperatures of -30/-40 whilst mushing a team of husky dogs for around 8 hours per day.I am doing this in honour of my amazing sister Abby, who had Downs Syndrome, and her two friends Natalia and Mandy who sadly were taken from us all far too soon. Having paid for this trip myself all funds raised will be going directly to charity. I have chosen the cause of Orwell Mencap Genesis because I would like to directly help Abby, Natalia and Mandys peers so that we can still support the community they were part of and directly help people with learning and physical disabilities.
