From Fire to Ice - cycling around Iceland
2 minute read
Rob and Kevin are cycling around Iceland to raise money for a charity which helps burns victims. "Dan's Fund for Burns" helped get Rob back on his feet (literally) after he nearly died in a house-fire.
The From Fire 2 Ice expedition is fundraising for the charity "Dan's Fund For Burns" by cycling around Iceland.
Rob and film-maker Kevin will cycle around Iceland while braving the unpredictable and often wet and windy situations this beautiful island has to offer.
Rob's life changed drastically in January 2010.
While staying at a house in Zanzibar, the property he was staying in caught fire, trapping him inside. Rob was lucky to survive, although he was still dangerously close to death. He spent over 200 days in hospital, endured 35 operations (so far), and had to learn how to walk again.
Rob is now raising money for the charity that, literally, helped to get him back on his feet.
After very nearly losing his life, Rob will be forever grateful to those who helped him. Medical staff battled to save his life and Dan's Fund for Burns helped him with his painfully slow recovery.
