Borne Arctic Challenge 2018
The expedition begins in...
Everyday, premature babies face the ultimate struggle for survival in their fight for life. This April, a courageous team of Borne supporters have set themselves an extreme challenge : to walk to the North Pole and raise £500,000 for new research into the causes of preterm birth.
Team Borne will face their own test of survival as they traverse the Arctic Ocean, one of the most inhospitable regions on the planet. The distances are immense, the ice conditions unstable, the weather unpredictable, and there is no escape from the extreme cold. Temperatures are between -25C and -45C.
Join them on this incredible journey by supporting the Borne Arctic Challenge 2018.
We have the support of some amazing partners and sponsors!

Guess who? I was born 2 months premature and faced a number of complications, luckily none of which have affected me throughout my adult life. 1 in 10 premature babies, however, develop a permanent disability. I’m trekking to the North Pole to support @bornecharity’s life-saving research. Click the link in my bio to find out more 👶 #TBT #throwbackthursday
