Expedition Sponsorship


expedition Partnership

Partnership with The Spirit Lives Expedition provides direct access to inspirational and motivational Defence personnel. with unique leadership and team-building insights. Our knowledge and experience can be shared through speaking engagements and training sessions to enable commitment, goal-setting and resilience within your organisation.

An expedition of this magnitude is not a cheap affair, with equipment, food, fuel, flights and many other things required. In addition to donating to the Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation - via Wounded Heroes - our supporters can also choose to donate directly to funding the expedition, ensuring our team have what they need for over two months on the ice!

What we can offer you:

  • Pride in association with the ANZAC Spirit and traditions of mateship, courage, endurance, and adventure.

  • inspiration for workplaces to enable goal-setting, overcoming adversity, physical and mental fortitude, challenging themselves.

  • Motivation for individuals, workplaces and organisations to remain strong and resilient.

  • Evidence of the value of teamwork in overcoming physical and mental challenges.

  • Small team outdoor experiences, including back country skiing and mini expeditions.

What we need:

  • Financial support to achieve our next period of cold-weather training in Norway, under the direction of Polar Guide Hannah McKeand.

  • Financial support to conduct this historic traverse of Antarctica.

  • Clothing and equipment for our training periods and the Expedition.


  • Upcoming training with record-holding Polar Guide Hannah McKeand.

  • Continuing guidance and assistance from Master Polar Guide Eric Phillips OAM.

  • Continuing guidance and assistance from former Commando Heath Jamieson - recipient of the prestigious Australian Geographic Spirit of Adventure Medallion for his inspirational South Pole expedition with Walking With The Wounded.
