Walking with the Wounded

Huge thanks and good Luck to Simon Hearn, who is the founder of the executive search firm, Per Ardua Associates, will be part of the group that retraces the path of the final major expedition, led by the explorer, Ernest Shackleton, across part of the island. Simon is also raising money for the leading Armed Forces charity, Walking With The Wounded.

As well as following Shackleton’s route, part of Simon’s team will also attempt to find Shackleton’s Primus stove – left on the last leg of his journey across South Georgia.
Walking With The Wounded supports those who have served in the Armed Forces and their families, empowering them to regain their independence, thrive and contribute in our communities. They have adapted and continue to support our ex-service community during this difficult time. WWTW has worked in partnership with the NHS for many years and during this period they will continue those partnerships to respond wherever possible to support our incredible NHS.

An International team of 10 will land at King Haakon Bay in the
North of the island. We will then ski for 4 days with pulk (sledge) via the Murray Snowfield, The Razorback, Compass Glacier, Crean Glacier, the Nineteen-Sixteen Snowfield, Fortuna Glacier, Breakwind Ridge, Fortuna Bay, Shackleton Falls and eventually to Stromness Harbour, where Shackleton, Worsley and Crean were rescued on 20th May 1916.
