Announcing The Pink Apollo Project

We are so excited to announce the latest adventure from our friends at 5th Element Expeditions, led by avid adventurer and multiple world record holder, Geoff Wilson.

Geoff is so committed to making a difference to the lives of families experiencing breast cancer; he’s raised an amazing $250,000 for the McGrath Foundation! But he won’t stop there! Geoff and his team’s latest challenge, The Pink Apollo Project aims to break the world record for the highest altitude unpressurised flight, reaching an epic 40,000 feet ‘ all in a BRIGHT PINK hot air balloon! That’s the edge of space in a wicker basket, exposed to the elements!!

All funds raised will go towards the McGrath Foundation’s work in placing McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia and increasing breast awareness in young people, with a particular emphasis on young women.
