ROWING FOR THE CURE
Saturday 28 July 2012, 12pm to 8pm (8-hour relay marathon)
Rowing, Unit F, 449 Holloway Road, London, N7 6LJ
Nearest tube: Holloway Road
Charity event at Rowing to raise funds for three charities: Find Your Feet, National Literacy Trust, and The Stroke Association.
Come aboard this summer with Rowing. Select your team of eight people to compete on indoor rowers, or ‘ergs,’ arranged in Rowing’s gallery space and see how far your team can row in this 8-hour marathon relay event. The goal for the total distance rowed is equal to the typical ‘Thames meander,’ which starts at Halfpenny Bridge, Lechlade, and ends at Teddington Lock (approx. 125 miles). The proceeds raised by artists, athletes, and art world enthusiasts alike will go to the participating charity of your choice. This is a public event and the competition is open to all. Space is limited, RSVP for your place now. Please also join us for a post-rowing drink at The Swimmer at The Grafton Arms (13 Eburne Road, N7 6AR).

About the participating charities:
FIND YOUR FEET
Find Your Feet is a small and innovative charity that, instead of giving unsustainable handouts, provides training and support to build on the existing knowledge and skills of poor rural families living in India, Nepal, Malawi and Zimbabwe to help them find lasting solutions to their poverty.
THE NATIONAL LITERACY TRUST
The National Literacy Trust aims to create a society in which everyone has the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills that they need to fulfill their own and, ultimately, the nation’s potential.
THE STROKE ASSOCIATION
The Stroke Association is a registered national charity solely concerned with stroke. We aim to reduce strokes through research and health education and also help and support people and their families who have been affected by stroke through our Community Services.
Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 28%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
So please dig deep and donate now.
