Story

Bowel  cancer is Northern Ireland’s second biggest cancer killer. Around 1,100 men and women are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year in Northern Ireland, and 400 people die from the disease. If diagnosed at the earliest stage, bowel cancer is highly treatable, with a survival rate of more than 93% over five years. However, poor awareness means that only 1 in 10 cases are detected at an early stage which often means it is too late to be treated.

We will be raising awareness and funds for Bowel Cancer UK by #RowAMarathon on Friday 16th June from 1pm to 5pm.

We will have 1-2 rowing machines at our offices or close by with individuals rowing for 15 -30 minutes each, the machine will be zeroed at 1pm and stopped at 5pm with the team rowing the furthest being declared winners of the Bowel Cancer challenge Cup. We reckon that in 4 hours we should be able to easily row 42k hence the event name #RowAMarathon .

Come join us!
