THE STORY:

On April 13 of this year, Rob Burns will embark on the challenge of a lifetime as he joins a seven-man expedition team to travel to the North Pole.

This journey will throw many hurdles in their way. It will start in the remote village of Longyearbyen, Norway, located 78 degrees north, far beyond the Arctic Circle. From Longyearbyen the team will travel by cargo Jet to the Russian research camp known as ‘Barneo’ located at approximately 89 degrees north, where they will land on an ice runway. As Barneo is located on floating pack ice its precise location varies from day to day. If the ice conditions and exact camp whereabouts are unfavorable on arrival, the team will be flown by helicopter to another departure point. For the duration of the 10-12 day expedition the team will endure subzero temperatures ranging from -20C to -40C as they ski northward while pulling sleds in excess of 120 pounds for 8-10 hours per day. They will navigate open water leads, thin ice and large pressure ridges as they pursue their goal of reaching the top of the world - The Terrestrial North Pole at 90 degrees!

Personal aspirations aside, Rob is raising money to assist the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to fight pediatric and adult cancer. Please help them continue to provide the best treatment available today while developing the breakthroughs for tomorrow’s cures through cutting-edge research.
