We are delighted to announce that LifeProof , maker of waterproof solutions for handheld technology, have come on board as title sponsor for our North Pole expedition this year. As we have talked about in the past, an expedition to the North Pole is not cheap , and sponsorship is vital for us to have the best chance in making it to the Pole. Every euro that we can raise increases our percentage of success , allowing for leeway in getting extra equipment airdrops. LifeProof have been brilliant to deal with , and really understand what drives us as a team! As a brand they are all about “freedom and pushing the boundaries to the limits of what was previously thought possible” , a sentiment we wholeheartedly agree with. Another one of the perks of working with LifeProof is that we no longer have to worry about our iPhones getting drowned as we train out in the wind and rain as they have kindly given us some of their amazing waterproof cases! Keep an eye on the blog and social media over the coming weeks to learn more about LifeProof , and there is even rumour that we might have a few competitions 🙂
We are still looking for other sponsors to come on board and help us achieve our goal of becoming the first Irish ever to walk to the North Pole. You can find out how you can help over on our Sponsorship page , or by purchasing something from our shop .
