Hey, look: we're on Facebook. And you can be there too.
We have a Facebook group set up for all our friends from all-over everywhere: we're calling it the Shackleton Centenary Supporters Club (SCSC).
Join us, won't you?
As an aside, it's been interesting to note how other NGO's and charities are doing the Facebook thing as well of late: it seems like a very natural extension of calling all your friends and family to let them know what you're doing.
We hope it works out as well for us as it does for friends trying to raise a few bob running a marathon, and we don't see why it shouldn't.
Over the coming weeks and months we'll update the Supporter's Club with what we're doing training-wise, and keep you all informed of our progress in raising money to make the trip happen. The group page links back to us here at our website, so you can find out the latest news there, or drop in back here for the main story.
