Scott, who was diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS in 2015, will travel nearly 66km in temperatures of as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius.
He said: “Since being diagnosed with MS four years ago my motto has always been to ‘Challenge MS’ and I can’t think of any bigger challenge than the arctic trek.”
“I want to take advantage of this period of stable health that I am going through. Something I have learned from living with MS is that this can change at the drop of a hat.“
Good luck Scott on your venture.
He is right multiple sclerosis can change on a dime as you can be walking one day and in a wheelchair the next day.
