Virgin Money Insurance is sponsoring a "Goliath Challenge". This challenge will see South African mountaineer and inspirational speaker, Sibusiso Vilane tackle the North Pole in an attempt to become the first Black person in the world to reach the North Pole, South Pole and Mount Everest.
Vilane believes that this proudly South African initiative will send a message of hope and motivation to other South Africans that they too can achieve exceptional things if they want to and are willing to grab the opportunities that are granted to them.
Vilane's expedition to the North Pole will commence on 4 April 2012 and he will be on the ice of the Arctic Ocean until 13 April 2012. He describes this expedition as a dangerous physical endurance challenge as he will be walking on a frozen expanse of water which is melting. Polar bears are a constant threat too.
