Team story

[p]So what are we doing?........Late last year, a colleague of mine and serial charity fundraiser had the bright idea of rowing the channel in a tiny cornish row boat. I thought, excellent, what could possible go wrong, I'm in. Unfortunately, due to the french and various EU bureaucracy, we are now rowing from Belgium! Whats the problem, its only twich as far. 50miles and about 22000 strokes we think! Quite a task for an unfit non rower. Training has begun, I am eating less pies and have moved onto organic wine.[/p][p] [/p][p]Why are we doing it?........ We are raising money for a charity called dreams come true. The charity supports young children and their families with life changing disease and gives them the opportunity to fulfuill a dream and to help a child or young person to think beyond their illness or disability and focus on something highly positive and empowering. There are many serious chronic illness's we cant always cure from leukaemia, lymphoma, cystic fibrosis. One day, we might. In the mean time, we can make the life of children with these illnesses better.[/p][p] [/p][p]We plan to complete the challenge on the 10th of June with a 4 day window depending on tide and weather. We have personally/privately raised £4000 as a group and this essentially gets us in the water and provides a support boat and many levels of life insurance and third party cover in case we crash into a container ship!. We want all the money raised through charitable donations to go to our charity and would love a monster total! Please donate what you can and support us on our journey.[/p][p] [/p][p]Our website is [url=http://qacharitychannelrow.com/]http://qacharitychannelrow.com/[/url].
