Genny was born and raised in the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba and has lived in the UK for twelve years now. Prior to moving to the UK, she went to University in New Brunswick, Canada, where she fell in love with the great outdoors and got into cross country skiing, snowshoeing, white-water rafting and kayaking.
In December 2021, Genny Brown will attempt to become the first woman from Aruba to ski to the South Pole. The Expedition will entail skiing approximately 120 km whilst pulling a sledge weighing roughly 60-70kg containing her supplies and tent. The conditions will be extreme with temperatures that could drop to - 50 degrees and severe winds. The aim of the expedition is to raise £25,000 for Lyme Aid UK who provide grants for people with lower incomes to get privately tested for Lyme Disease.
