Arctic To Desert Challenge Full Trailer



It never ceases to amaze me all of the great things people do -to raise money for charity and MND and the novel ideas they come up with [just wish I could think of them first !] I enjoyed watching this video and the music -thought I would share it-good luck to Matt ,Lee and Jim !
Jim`s mother - Jane died from M.N.D in 2005 and he wanted to do something to honour her-apparently she use to be a midwife and really enjoyed her work often sending juniors off for a cup of tea so she could deliver the babies herself !! So far these guys have raised £1 632.00 their target is £10 000.00 You can donate http://www.justgiving.com/Artic2Desert
So ! for a free M.N.D awareness band can anyone name the artist singing this song ?

Neat video and loads of traveling! Nice guys doing that!

I have absolutely no idea who sings that. I can recognize only a few voices and this guy isn't one of them, lol!

Happy Sunday, Janet!

I have seen these guys on TV.

It is Kenny Loggisns singing this song from the movie of the same name.

Hi folks!
Jim Kane here (the slowest one out of that wee trio)
Just a small correction here. Matt's mum, the lovely May, is alive and well (thankfully) My mother Jane (or Jean as it is here in Northern Ireland) was the one who passed away back in 2005.
On the bright side, we just finished the last (6th) marathon of the challenge, albeit with about an ounce of cartilage left between us!
Thank you so much for your support and if you know anyone who fancies donating to the Arctic to Desert Challenge, the page is still open for donations until new year's day.

I might even make a new video!
Thanks
Jim
