UK – On April 7, 2013 Evan Lewis, CEO of the companies eco-promo and Everything Environmental, successfully completed the challenge of the Arctic Circle Race which saw him cross country ski 160 km in Greenland for charity in three days. Lewis’ ambition was to raise funds for Myeloma UK, a charity dedicated to Myeloma research. A double success: He did not only complete the race, but also managed to raise more money than he had originally hoped to – i.e.than the 7.500 British Pounds (approx. 8,700 Euros) he had originally hoped for: One week after the race, the balance was at 9,100 Euros.
“Trust me it is the toughest cross country ski marathon in the world but I loved every minute of it, truly”, Lewis said. “I’d like to thank everyone who supported Myeloma UK with their donations and also everyone that helped me prepare.”
