Mt. Erebus, Antarctica
Trekking 600 miles across Antarctica while pulling a 100-pound sled is a grueling endurance test for any adventurer, but for Berkeley MBA student Alan Lock there’s an extra challenge: Lock has lost much of his vision to a degenerative eye condition, and hopes to become the first visually impaired person to cross Antarctica from the coast all the way to the South Pole. He will be joined by, among others, Richard Smith Tuck ’11, a friend pursuing his MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.
