I have been selected to join the Australian THEBIPOLAREXPEDITION and to ski to the South Pole in November 2009.
THEBIPOLAREXPEDITION a not-for-profit initiative is aimed at building a new awareness about the issues facing people with Bipolar Disorder and to raise funds to give grants for vital research into the causes and more effective diagnosis. We have partnered with the Australian Rotary Health Research Fund and the Black Dog Institute, and have arranged for Network Ten to be a media sponsor.
The Bipolar Expedition is an exciting adventure aimed at raising awareness and money for research into Bipolar Affective Disorder.
The Bipolar Expedition involves two treks – one to the South Pole in November 2008 and one to the North Pole in April 2009. Video footage from both will be made into a documentary about Bipolar Expedition (and fundraising activities during the lead up to the treks) .
I am hoping to raise money for the project through a number of activities including the sale of this T shirt.
