Rehabilitation Through Adventure

In 2014 a team came together to help one man achieve his dream to be the 'First Amputee to Cross the Greenland Ice Cap Unsupported!' Nobody had even imagined anything beyond this incredible expedition .... but 8 years and 15 projects later 65 Degrees North has continued to help over 100 wounded, injured and sick (WIS) service personnel and veterans realise their own ambitions. 

'Rehabilitation Through Adventure' offers our WIS community the opportunity to participate in challenging, unique and arduous expeditions which has significant benefits. We have witnessed first-hand how it impacts positively on their mental health and wellbeing and helps change lives for the better.
