Atlantic Row 2017

I'm rowing in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, the World's Toughest Rowing Race, from San Sebastian De La Gomera 3000 Miles across the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua in 2017.

In August 2015, following a diagnosis of heart failure in 2010, my 32 year old brother-in-law underwent a life-saving heart transplant. The transplant was a success and the journey back to full health continues. Along with the superb medical teams at Wythenshawe Hospital, Broadgreen Hospital and Countess of Chester Hospital, British Heart Foundation has been, and continues to be, an invaluable source of information, comfort and hope.

Heart conditions are the UK’s single biggest killer. British Heart Foundation’s work is crucial. The donation dependent charity funds around £100 million of life-saving heart research every year and is the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research. Please join me in supporting British Heart Foundation’s fight for every heartbeat.

With a passion for the outdoors and a lust for adventure, the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2017 is the perfect fit. I want to inspire people to become more active and adventurous and to highlight that people can achieve amazing things; there is a lot more to be had out of life if you set your sights high. The opportunity to combine fundraising with a challenge of this magnitude is something not to miss out on. 

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
