Disabled Leaders Network: Jonny Huntington - disabled athlete and explorer.

Jonny Huntington is a disabled athlete and a member of the Disabled Leaders Network - a platform developed in collaboration with the Snowdon Trust to unite Snowdon Trust scholarship holders and alumni.

In this conversation, we spoke with Jonny about his next ambition - to be the first disabled person to solo the South Pole, ever.

Jonny aims to walk from the continental shelf of Antarctica to the South Pole, a journey of approximately 911km, and he will do this completely alone – on a quest to fulfill his own ambitions and demonstrate potential.

During this conversation Jonny chats with Kate Mattick, GDI Hub Membership and Engagement Coordinator, covering topics from motivation to the connotations of the word “inspiration” and some of the technical, logistical and physical challenges of soloing the South Pole as a disabled person.
