Sky News interview
Posted 16th March 2015
Lewis, Danny and Alan chatted to the Sky News team about the expedition today.
On the breakfast show, Sunrise, the headnorth team told Eamonn Holmes and Isabel Webster about the trek and the challenges they'll face on their journey to the Pole. They also spoke about the charities the Y.CO expedition is supporting. Lewis Moody spoke about his foundation, which, along with the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, the headnorth team is fundraising for. We are currently at around 22% of our target thanks to your support - please keep donating here!
Lewis set up the Lewis Moody Foundation after meeting Joss Rowley Stark, a gifted young rugby player with Sheffield RUFC, who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in 2012. Josh died in 2013 at the age of only 16, and in his memory, Lewis launched the Aviva Premiership Final at Twickenham on 31 May 2014. The Foundation raises funds to establish the UK’s first BioBank for brain tumours, a scientific facility for biological data that will improve the development of treatment and cures, supported by The Brain Tumour Charity and Cancer Research UK. The Foundation also helps families affected by serious illness, offering one-off experiences for children and their families.
The presenters couldn't resist getting Lewis and Danny's take on the rugby six nations later on!
