    filling in the blanks

    Part of the appeal was that such a flight had not even been recorded for over a century. In those days, such expeditions were huge events, with a nation's pride resting on their success and so resources were committed to them. Although David Adams eventually managed to secure a substantial sponsorship deal with an insurance company, he had the added challenge of having to (1) ______ sufficient funds for his trip.

    Then, of course, he had to (2)___________major survival concerns, such as predicting the weather pattern and coping with the dangerously low temperatures.

    Could someone tell me what words to fill in the blank?

    For (1) I think it should be 'secure'. but the word has already been used in the earlier part of the sentence.
    For (2), I think it should be 'consider'.

    Am I correct? Or are there more appropriate words?

    Many thanks.

    How about "raise" for #1?
    "consider" for#2 looks fine.
