Let's face it, we've all heard people making fun of disability. Some comedians even make a habit of making disabled people the butt of cruel, thoughtless jokes. It's not that we can't joke about the subject, but the challenge is to get people to think, to consider the point that comedians are trying to make - the reality behind the humour.
I was immensely proud that my challenge raised funds in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care. They're are an awesome charity and as many people at some point in their lives are affected by cancer I think people were not only inspired by my efforts during the expedition but really believed in the cause I was trying to help along the way.
