Many people look to take on arduous events and challenges. Some ride huge distances, some climb mountains, some tackle muddy obstacle courses; but Sarah Medwin stunned us all when she announced that her son Charlie would be rowing across the Atlantic. Crickey, now that is a challenge.
“In December 2019, we will embark on the challenge of a lifetime. All Oar Nothing will be attempting to row unassisted across the Atlantic Ocean in support of four incredible charities: Right To Play, OneSight, EHE Rare Cancer Charity, and Kidney Cancer UK. Rowing across the world’s second largest ocean will push the crew to their physical and mental limits - to put it simply, there’s a reason that more people have climbed Everest or travelled into space than have successfully navigated the 3,000 nautical miles from La Gomera, off the coast of Africa, to English Harbour, Antigua. #rowing #oceanrowing #atlantic #ocean #challenge #adventure #explore #fitspo #beastmode #rowyourboat #passionpassport #training #talisker #taliskerwhisky #madebythesea #3000miles”
We cannot stress enough the amount of training and dedication that this journey will entail. We are hugely grateful to Charlie and his three other fellow rowers for taking on this massive challenge and for including EHERCC as one of the beneficiaries. We hope that many will follow their preparations and the event itself which will be in December 2019. You can sponsor Charlie, and follow Charlie and his friends at:
