    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    We are aiming to complete 334,700 meters which is 208 miles (roughly the distance of London to Manchester) in a 24 hour row from 5pm on Friday 11th till 5pm Saturday 12th November. We will be rowing on a Concept 2 rowing machine and we are not allowed to let the flywheel stop spinning at any point.

    We are donating 2/3 of the money we raise to Cancer Research UK as this charity means a lot to all members of our crew. Especially one who has recently lost his father to the illness.

    The other third will be donated to DRC who are kindly letting us use their facility to complete this challenge. DRC is the oldest rowing club on the South Coast and is a big part of our lives.

    We are aiming to raise £1000 and are very thankful for any donations. We welcome you to come down and support us at Dover Rowing Club situated in Dover Sea Sport Center on the beach.

      2 Days from now and we will be undergoing our challenge. Seemed like a good idea at the time but the closer it gets the more we regret the task we have set!! Especially after doing a few practice 30 minutes on the rowing machine!! Thanks everyone for all the support that has been given so far, we really appreciate it all.
