Send Lis to the 2016 Fjallraven Polar!

Lis is applying to take part in the 2016 Fjallraven Polar – a 300 km dog sledding race through Norway and Sweden. Less than 30 people a year are able to compete in the race, and entry is based on popular votes.

Lis has spent the last 8 months working to put the below application video, which we filmed in over 10 countries (!), together. We’d really appreciate it if you took the time to watch the video or at least spend the 7 seconds necessary to vote for her on Fjallraven’s website.

Thank you for your support!
