Forward Expeditions to Promote CaringBridge(R) on Historic Victorinox North Pole '09 Expedition
Date:11/20/2008

EAGAN, Minn., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Forward Expeditions LLC, Ely, Minn., announced today that they will use their upcoming historic Victorinox North Pole expedition to raise awareness and funds for CaringBridge(R), a Minnesota-based nonprofit organization offering free personalized Web sites to people facing serious medical conditions. The world's largest charitable nonprofit Web site, CaringBridge connects more than 20 million families each year through personal, private CaringBridge Web sites. In addition to raising awareness, expedition team members are hopeful that their unique approach to the expedition's physical and mental challenges will also inspire the families using and supporting CaringBridge.

The Victorinox North Pole '09 expedition team of John Huston and Tyler Fish will attempt to become the first Americans to ski unsupported to the North Pole. Huston, age 32 of Chicago, Ill., and Fish, age 34 of Ely, Minn., will depart from the northern tip of Canada's Ellesmere Island in early March 2009 and trek 475 miles over the Arctic Ocean to the North Pole. Their expedition will not receive or use any outside assistance such as airdrops, re-supplies or sled dogs. Instead, Huston and Fish will each carry 30-pound packs and pull 250-pound sleds full of gear, food, cooking fuel and navigational equipment as they negotiate the maze of ice ridges, drifts and open water that stand between them and the Pole. Huston and Fish will travel by skiing and snowshoeing, and when necessary will cross leads by swimming, while wearing dry suits.

"The extremely rugged terrain and bitter cold of the Arctic Ocean make this particular expedition very dangerous and intimidating, and if we lose our focus we could become overwhelmed," says Huston. "We believe that by approaching this challenge with optimism, humility and responsible action, we can be successful and safely reach the Pole."
