My story

[p]Mark, Dan, Justin and Rauri are rowing 3000 miles of the Atlantic in December 2020. Between us we have completed ultra marathons, multi day ultra endurance cycling events and even sailed the Atlantic, but none have rowed an ocean before! We are raising money for two charities. [/p][p]Why?[/p][p]One of Rauri’s best friends and rugby team mates, Stef, tragically died of Motor Neurone Disease in 2014. We are supporting the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation; set up by former Scotland rugby international Doddie Weir after he was diagnosed with MND to support fellow sufferers to live as full a life as possible and fund research into the causes and potential cures for the disease. [/p][p]We are also supporting Pursuing Independent Paths. A local London charity committed to supporting adults with learning disabilities to achieve their potential, which Dan is a trustee of. Through their care centre in Warwick Avenue, PiP provide a fun, sociable environment where their community of students can learn life skills like managing their money or using public transport. [/p][p]“On Shoulders of Giants” is a recognition that the completion of this challenge will be the product of the support of our families, friends and sponsors in much the same way that the work of these 2 great charities supports others to conquer their own challenges every day. [/p]
