Story

5th Element Expeditions is committed to contributing ongoing support of the McGrath Foundation because we believe breast care nurses make a world of difference to the lives of families experiencing breast cancer.

 

When a good friend of Geoff’s was diagnosed with breast cancer, the reality of the severity and brutality of this disease really struck a chord. As a father of three, including two daughters, Geoff became acutely aware of the importance of understanding and taking proactive steps to reduce the risk of a disease that affects 1 in 8 Australian women. Statistically speaking, you will probably know or have known someone who has warred with this insidious disease.

 

The McGrath Foundation does incredible work to support women right through from diagnosis to remission. They are helping to make a difference for 50,000 families and counting.  5th Element continues to support the McGrath Foundation thorugh various endeavours, along with specific expeditions like the boys are currently on.

 

At the moment, world record holding adventurer, Geoff Wilson and his son-in-law and up and comer, Simon Goodburn will be the first Australian Team to tackle a crossing of the infamous ice-covered island of Greenland. The duo will negotiate treacherous crevasse-riddled glaciers, predatory polar bear’s and bitter cold to complete the 2700 kilometer odyssey from the Southern tip of Greenland, to the humble Inuit town of Qanaaq in the North.

 

Geoff and Simon will be attempting the voyage, unsupported – meaning they have to tow all of their supplies and belongings behind them in two expedition-pulk sleds weighing a sturdy 150 kilograms each. Furthermore, to maintain unsupported status, they can’t accept any external help – not even a warm drink.

 

Similarly to Geoff’s last journey (record breaking “boob-sled” Antarctic crossing in 2013/14) the boys will be raising money and awareness in support of the McGrath Foundation.

 

Every dollar makes a difference and you will be helping the McGrath Foundation place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia.

 

Supporting us to raise funds for this great cause is easy! Just click on the “Donate” button to make a donation and you will be emailed a tax-deductible receipt straight away.

 

Yours in adventure, 

 

The 5th Element Team.
