/ Lake Baikal Winter Expedition for Charity
In a few months I am going on an expedition to Siberia with the aim to cross the frozen solid, deepest lake in the world, Lake Baikal for charity. It will take 3 days of sled pulling, in temperatures down to -30C, sleeping on the ice. I can say for sure it will be one of, if not the hardest things I have ever done.
I am going to raise money for charity The Dr Hadwens Trust. They raise money to fund medical research that will improve life for all humanity, but without the cruel use of animal testing. I am funding this entire expedition out of my own pocket so any money given will go straight to the charity, and not a penny on the trip.
If any of you kind souls could spare a bit of cash it would make a huge difference. Thanks for reading!

How far is it across? 100 kms? 200 kms? etc. Good luck!
It's roughly about 66km, or 41 miles. Compared to my ultra-running friends it's not a whole lot, but for me and at those temperatures it will be a real challenge!
Thanks for the post :)
There´s a road across in the winter, one can take a bus!
oooo. Im running across it in march. Tho I havent got a charitable bone in my body. Good on ya.
