Through a not-for-profit organisation called 65 Degrees North, comprising a small team of working professionals who volunteer their time to rehabilitate injured and wounded ex-servicemen and women through inspiring adventure-events, Enigma Alliance is committed to assisting physically and mentally disabled veterans to live a self-sufficient and full life.

By changing the perception of mental and physical disability through the ‘Spirit of Adventure’ it aims to inspire and motivate others to overcome, achieve and succeed.

Inspiring adventures include:

2015:  Peter Bowker and the 65 Degrees North team successfully recorded the ‘World’s first unsupported crossing of the Greenland ice cap by an amputee’ which took 27 days to complete in extreme storm conditions and brutally low temperatures.

2016: a team of 14 conquered Kilimanjaro’ with every one reaching the summit of the World’s highest free-standing mountain in Africa.

2017:  a team of five stood on ‘top of the bottom of the World’ – one of the coldest, most remote places on Earth; Antarctica’s Mt Vinson and recorded a World’s First live Facebook video from the summit.

In September 2017, a team of up to 17 injured men and women will take on some of the toughest routes in the Pyrenees, cycling coast-to-coast and pushing their limits in just seven days, to prove that there is life beyond injury.

Enigma Alliance and Chelsea Group are proud to be supporters of 65Degrees North.
