As the world’s leading operator of sustainable, ethical small group adventures, Chimu Adventures believe that travelling responsibly is the only way to travel. Whether it’s the environment, animal welfare, or educational programs, they are constantly supporting research & implementing ways to make a positive difference wherever they take you.
This once-in-a lifetime journey to Antarctica with one of Australia’s greats, Kurt Fearnley AO, epitomises that philosophy. On this unique fundraising journey, Kurt will travel to the end of the earth on a quest to raise funds supporting education for people with disabilities, living in marginalised areas.
Three times Paralympic gold medalist and the holder of a plethora of other international medals and achievements, including Gold at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, and succesfully crawling the Kokoda track, Kurt truly knows what it feels like to be on top of the world.
Proceeds from berth sales will be donated to the MAD project where, working directly with Kurt Fearnley, the funds will reach education programs for people with disabilities in marginalised locations. Scroll down for a little more information about this expedition.
Your Host: Kurt Fearnley
“My education instilled in me the value of expectation. Expectation which I treasure to this day. When travelling internationally, I’ve seen a life without expectation and without education and that can be more disabling than any disability. I hope to play a small part to increase the participation of people with disabilities in marginalised communities around the world. And I look forward to you joining me win that journey.” – Kurt Fearnley.
