The Plan

In 2022/3  a small team including:-

POLAR GUIDE Dixie Dansercoer,


POLAR ACADEMY graduate Iona Somerville &

FILM-MAKER Mike Webster

will create the new POLE OF POSSIBILITY.

The diverse team will journey to 79 degrees latitude and longitude in Antarctica…a unique new pole, to represent all that is POSSIBLE when we allow our ideas to seed, and when people, passion and purpose come together.

We all have the ability to be the best version of ourselves and to make a difference to the community and world around us.

The POP Challenge is inspired by Paralympic Champion Karen Darke MBE  who won gold, the 79th medal for her country, in the Rio Paralympic Games 2016.

Karen has since cycled 7 continents in 9 long rides following major coastlines, rivers and water sources: water being modern-day gold that we need to protect to conserve our wellbeing and planet.

The journey to create the Pole of Possibility in Antarctica will be the ultimate continent for the Quest 79 Project, and champions the need to preserve this vast continent of frozen water.

The project is also raising £79K for The Spinal Injuries Association charity.
