FP London welcomes Christina Franco, one of the UK’s most respected polar adventurers.
She started out as a guide working in Italy and Africa, which gave her great experience as well as allowing her to dedicate time to personal challenges such as climbing and racing in a variety of testing environments. After winning the Polar Race 2004 to the Magnetic North Pole with teammate Justin Packshaw, she started to focus on achieving her ultimate dream of reaching the True North Pole.
Through her expeditions, Christina raises money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, Save the Rhino and the Wilderness Leadership School. In 2017 Christina will have a third attempt at what no other woman has achieved before,
reaching the North Pole solo.
For our next event, Christina willspeak about the journey of defining your dream as a woman when it does not conform with the accepted norm and the rewards and challenges of making this dream happen!
We hope to seeing many of you on this occasion. Let us know if you can join us.
