Eirliani Rahman is aiming to ski 100 miles (161 km) from 13-25 April 2019 to the North Pole to raise awareness on child sexual abuse.
Most recently she has been training in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Photo credit: Jessica O'Meara.
On her trek to the North Pole, she aims to ski about 10 miles (16 km) while dragging a sled with food and gear behind, weighing some 100 lbs (45 kg). Temperatures will drop to minus 40 degrees while she's out there in the Arctic.
She's been training over the past two winters in Nunavut, in the Canadian Arctic where she battled white out conditions and gale force winds of up to 43 mph (70 kmh).
She was the first Singapore national to have circumnavigated the frozen Frobisher Bay in April 2018, skiing 63 miles (101 km) over 5 days, while dragging 190 lbs (86 kg) on a sled and if she succeeds in skiing to the North Pole, she will be the first Singaporean to do so.
