ThANK YOU FOR ALL THE INCREDIBLE SUPPORT

Wednesday 25th July  - Thursday July 26th 2018

Prostate Cancer UK has a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer

So a group of 12 friends, all who have never rowed before, braved the elements and successfully rowed the Irish Sea, from Arklow to Abersoch. It entailed a continuous row for approximately 80 miles (which took us 20 hours) in a four person Celtic Longboat. This is a fixed seat single oar boat, making the challenge a real test of endurance.
We aimed to raise £50,000 for Prostate Cancer UK which we have currently exceeded thanks to everyone's amazing generosity.

We had to bring the Start forward as the weather wasn't permitting us to start later in the week as planned on thurs/fri ) so we started on:

Wednesday 26th July and WE arrived in Abersoch Thursday 26th July ( Early in the morning)

Our Inspiration

The challenge is being led by Adam Churton.
Adam’s father, James, was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in 2011.
Due to the incredible advances in research and treatments, James is still going strong today.
Our mission is simple - raise as much money as we can to help continue these advances and give more families the chance to fight back at prostate cancer!
