My name is Dean. I'm running the 2012 Antarctica Marathon to raise money for conservation and penguins!

Back Home

To the Frozen Continent…

February 29th, 2012

We’ll I’m off!

On March first, I’ll begin my trek to Antarctica by flying to Buenos Aires, then on to Tierra del Fuego. I can’t begin to thank everyone enough for your support, encouragement, help, and donations.

Our Accomplishment
Together, we have made a huge difference for Antarctic preservation and penguin conservation. So far, we’ve given over $28,000 for Antarctic penguin research and $2,500 for Humboldt penguin conservation in Peru. If you’re keeping score at home, that’s well over $30,000 and counting. I’m completely blown away by the response.

My site will continue to receive donations while I’m away. Please continue to encourage others to support conservation!

Follow the Adventure
I’ll be posting regularly on facebook and twitter during my journey. I may be able to update this site as well. I’ll do my best, but at some point, I’ll be decidedly off the grid.

When I return, I’ll have a cavalcade of images, video and thoughts to share with you and some special items from the trip to auction at a gathering.

The penguins and I love you!
