Team story

[p][b]TWO INCREDIBLE CAUSES, TWO SAILORS, TWO WEEKS.[/b][/p][p][b][i]To raise funds for Macmillan and the Stroke Association.[/i][/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Our reason[/b][/p][p]Josh's Mother-in-law has been battling breast cancer for 15 years, and although things haven’t been easy, her thirst and passion for life has been the inspiration for taking on this challenge.[/p][p]To us, sailing around Britain symbolises that we’re all in this together and with the help of everyone we can make things a little bit brighter.[/p][p]We are setting out on this challenge to raise vital funds for two charities which are very close to our hearts, Macmillan and Stroke Association. These two outstanding charities help support millions of people within the UK, people who are both living with cancer and people that have been affected by a stroke. These charities also support their family and friends during these difficult times, as often seeing a loved one go through either illness can be difficult.[/p][p]Statistically within the UK, someone gets diagnosed with cancer every two minutes however, Cancer survival is improving and has doubled in the last 40 years. So by raising money and awareness for cancer, we feel there is hope that the survival rate will only increase not only in the UK but across the globe.[/p][p]A stroke is a sudden and devastating illness, one which has a massive impact on peoples day to day lives, 5 out of 8 stroke survivors are left with a permanent disability. In the UK there is one stroke every five minutes and there are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK. So raising money and awareness is paramount, so the necessary support can be in place for these people.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Our Challenge[/b][/p][p]We’ll be sailing non-stop, unassisted from Weymouth, covering just under 2,000 miles around mainland Britain, in our open 20ft catamaran.[/p][p]Our challenge is to sail non-stop unassisted around mainland Britain in under 2 weeks on a catamaran in aid of Macmillan and Stroke Association. We will travel a distance of ~2,600KM.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]To follow us and find out more information please see our website: [url=http://wildgybe.com/]wildgybe.com[/url][/p][p]Or follow us on social media @teamwildgybe[/p][p][br][/p][p]NOTE: If you would prefer to discuss our sponsorship opportunities please contact us directly by email hello@wildgybe.com.[/p]
