Walking to the South Pole

Cascade are supporting Malcolm Walker and his team, on their expedition, walking to the South Pole. The expedition are following in the footsteps of Captain Scott, whose body was found 100 years ago this week, after their epic, failed bid to be the first to the South Pole.

The 2012 In the Footsteps of Legends Expedition sees a small team of walkers, lead by explorer David Hempleman-Adams, including Olympian Matthew Pinsent and 4 injured soldiers from the same regiment as Captain Oats, who famously said that 'I may be some time' as he left Scott to head to his death in the night, walk the last 2 degrees to the pole, dragging their own equipment on a sled.

The expedition is raising funds for Walking with the Wounded and Alzheimer's Research UK.

Cascade having been supporting the Expedition with video equipment, design and web development.

We wish them well.
