Team Mawson consists of 8 people who are currently living at Mawson Station in Antarctica. To give ourselves a goal through the coldest darkest month of winter we have decided to 'virtually' walk to the South Pole, 2500kms in 31 days. To make sure that we remain focused on the walk we are raising money for Headspace and we also invited our colleagues at the Antarctic Division to join us.
Team Mawson has been joined by The Gumboot Ramblers from Macquarie Island. The Gumboot Ramblers consists of 10 people who are based on the Island for at least 12 months-starting this winter, Kim Kliska says "We are looking forward to fundraising in our gumboots on the green sponge this July!"
We also have been joined by Remediation Rampage from head office in Kingston. The remediation team work across Antarctica to reduce the footprint that we leave behind.
We have now been joined by The White Walkers from Casey Station and Team Davis from Davis Station - Welcome guys
Living and working in Antarctica for over 12 months is tough on your mental health. We understand how important getting support when you need it is and that's why we support Headspace.
We've created this page because we want to make a difference. We're inspired by the work of Headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation Ltd and wanted to support them by raising money. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation Ltd, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
