Lewis Moody, former England Rugby Captain, is preparing with an elite team for an expedition to the remotest region of Antarctica.

Led by polar explorer, Alan Chambers MBE, the team will be journeying to the South Pole, one of the most inhospitable environments on the planet in an attempt to raise an incredible £250,000 for The Lewis Moody Foundation.

Lewis and his team, with the support of corporate partner Y.CO, are undertaking the headsouth expedition as the final epic challenge in the headsup series, which has seen them trek to the North Pole in headnorth, cycle 1000km across Vietnam and Cambodia in headeast and raft, cycle and trek from the east to west coast of Costa-Rica in headwest.

The challenge has the sole purpose of driving donations and fundraising for The Lewis Moody Foundation which supports and funds research into brain tumours – the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under the age of 40.

Former Wickersley student Joss Rowley-Stark was one of the many people who helped inspire Lewis to setup the Lewis Moody Fountaion and raise money for vital research.
