Friday, August 3, 2007

Brice Minnigh, a 1993 Belmont Journalism grad and Fulbright scholar, is embarking Aug. 3 with two friends on a 700-km unsupported crossing of the Greenland ice cap, the world's second-largest after Antarctica. The trio will need to travel approximately 20 km a day in average temperatures of -20 to -30 degrees Celsius in order to reach their destination in 35 days, a time frame determined by the amount of food they will be able to carry with them on sleds.

The three men will use their trip to raise funds for longtime charity partner ORBIS, a nonprofit humanitarian organization dedicated to blindness prevention and treatment in developing countries.
