Weʼre raising £20,000 to increase awareness for Sporting Chance Charity by rowing 3000miles solo across the Atlantic Ocean
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
December 2020 will mark Craig’s epic adventure to row solo 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean as part of the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Row Challenge.
In May 2018 Craig tragically lost his father Colin to a heart attack. A legend in Rugby league, a role model and supportive foundation in Craig’s life not only as his father but through Craigs own professional rugby league career and ‘Crazy Craig’ challenges. This is where Craig was introduced to Sporting Chance.
It takes a lot of courage to ask for help, either during or after a career in Sport and despite the importance of mental health regularly hitting the headlines, many sports people still suffer in silence with the stigma of mental health haunting them in the shadows and not asking for the help that they need.
Sporting Chance do incredible work supporting both individuals and organisations across the world of sport, to address mental health, emotional welfare and addictive disorders.
A very fitting charity for such a sporting endeavour as rowing the Atlantic.
