Expedition Siberia

My Story

On the 3rd March I head to Siberia to take on my next challenge and Record attempt, crossing the 80k width of Lake Baikal - the World's Largest Frozen Lake. I will be doing this while keeping the football in the air and under control within a 48 hour time frame. Over the years I've taken on other football challenges up Mount Everest and Across the Sahara Desert but I think the -20 temperatures and icy terrain will test my endurance, control and concentration to the max! I'm doing this challenge to raise money and awareness for Cancer Research UK, whether you can donate a penny or a pound I am extremely grateful for your support!! Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m fundraising right now for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose! Donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
