It’s Not the Coldest Journey, but It’s Still an Adventure
Reading Time: 1 minute read
The Coldest Journey has captured much of our attention over the past few months at Carestream. Back in January, we announced that Sir Ranulph Fiennes and his team would be taking along the DRX-Transportable system on the trek across Antarctica in the dead of winter. Four months later and we’re happy to report that the journey continues, however Sir Ranulph had to head home because of a case of frostbite. The team has forged ahead in his absence across the dangerous ice environment, in the name of both adventure and charity.
The Coldest Journey set out to raise $10 million for Seeing is Believing, an organization dedicated to eliminating avoidable blindness and visual impairment. In the same spirit as the Coldest Journey, five Carestream Health UK Limited employees attempt a strenuous, though not quite as dangerous journey of their own. The “Wee Bit Chilly Journey” will take our colleagues on a cycling adventure across the UK from coast to coast. The team will travel from Hull to Liverpool (178 miles) from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th June finishing at the Arena and Convention Centre, Albert dock, Liverpool just in time for the UK Radiology Conference, which takes place from Monday 10th to Wednesday 12th June.
