Heroes of the arctic circle: more on Steve Young
August 31, 2011 § Leave a comment
Someone else has been on adventures in the Arctic recently, but in a more dramatic way than me. In March I interviewed the fantastic Steve Young, a soldier who trekked to the North Pole after breaking his back in a bomb blast in Afghanistan, despite being told he would never walk again.
He and three other injured servicemen joined a team of explorers, including Prince Harry, and trekked from Norway to the pole, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity Walking with the Wounded.
