Vanessa O’Brien is taking this flag with her to the North Pole.

Vanessa O’Brien has everything she needs to conquer the North Pole. The training, the gear, the equipment – but she realized she was missing one thing. A Red Cross flag.

The Back Bay resident has climbed her fair share of mountains already. Everest, Mount McKinley, Vinson Massif, Carstensz, Aconcagua, Elbrus and Kilimanjaro – to name a few. Now she’s trekking the North Pole, and taking the Red Cross with her  – a flag she will leave behind.

We are anxious to watch Vanessa through Twitter and blog updates while on her journey, which began today. We wish her the very best of luck and hope she has a safe homecoming.
