Two Australians Justin Jones and James Castrission will trek from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole and back, without assistance of any kind. Their expedition will raise funds for 'You Can', a fundraising campaign to build specialized youth cancer centres across Australia.

Excerpts of their press communiqué : "...This year, we will undertake a world first, unsupported polar expedition: Crossing the Ice. Traversing from the Antarctic rim to the South Pole and back, we will journey 2  200 kms on skis, sled-hauling all provisions essential for three months survival in one of the harshest environments on the planet.

Through realising a childhood dream and committing ourselves to a groundbreaking expedition, we wish to inspire others to overcome fear and pursue their own adventures and dreams.."
