Neptune P2P Group Managing Director, Carl Sykes will be joining the ‘Into the Wild 2019’ canoeing expedition on the Yukon River in NW Canada this Monday 24th June.
Carl and a colleague will be joining the expedition led by Sean Johnson and Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox, star of the recent TV series “SAS: Who Dares Wins”, for a 460 mile leg of the 1,980 mile kayaking expedition. The expedition is unsupported and self-sustained throughout, with 8-10 hours of paddling a day, pitching camp and living rough for the duration.
The purpose of the expedition is to raise money for two worthy charities, the Rock to Recovery charity, through the Royal Marines Charity and for the Special Boat Services Association. The charities provide support for serving members and veterans offering a range of services with a significant focus towards supporting those with post-traumatic stress disorder. Donations can be made via Virgin Money Giving and the expedition can be followed on Twitter.
