BREAKING THE CYCLE - SOUTH POLE will tell the story of Kate Leeming kateleeming.com, a professional Australian athlete who plans to become the first person on earth to reach the South Pole on a bicycle.

Kate combines her drive and skills for expedition cycling with philanthropy and education. She has joined the fight against AIDS as a response to her firsthand experiences during her 2009/10 Breaking The Cycle - Africa expedition btcycle.com. This time Kate will use her South Pole venture to raise money in support of The Global Fund, which finances medical and educational programmes targeting HIV-related diseases. To ensure that 100% of the funds reach those who need it, she is partnering with PRODUCT (RED) and Charity Miles to design an effective marketing and fundraising campaign.

As a former teacher, Kate is passionate about education. In collaboration with Intuitive Media, an Australian e-learning company, Kate is using her South Pole expedition experience for an e-learning leadership programme to inspire children and young people so they will aim high and turn their dreams into reality.

Combining a sporting challenge with a major cause and education is key to Kate's motivation. Helping to make a difference allows her to tap into energies that lay far beyond the reach of pure self-satisfaction.
