Zahab and Gregoretti, and a borrowed husky named Spike, will traverse about 1,000 kilometres through three northern regions including the Torngat Mountains in Labrador, the Penny Ice Cap on Baffin Island, all on foot, and then jump on fat bikes with studded tires and ride the Arctic Ice Road in the Northwest Territories to the Arctic Ocean. Zahab, who founded Impossible 2 Possible, will be sharing photos and experiences along the way with schools and members of the public.
