Macmillan Cancer Support

We support people affected by cancer to make sure no one faces cancer alone

Story

In January 2015 I'll be pushing myself to the limit by rowing across the Atlantic ocean. This is far tougher than anything I've done before. Nothing can come close to the challenge of spending approximately 70 days at sea, and rowing in two-hour shifts, around-the-clock until we reach land in Georgetown, Guyana.

As part of a mixed crew of 5 rowers, we will arrive in South America hairier, smellier and thinner but hope to claim 4 Guinness World records for the crossing, including the record as the fastest crossing from mainland Europe to mainland South America.

Sam aims to raise £240,000 during his journey around the world. Donating through JustGiving is totally secure and every penny you donate will go to Macmillan, where it will be used towards improving equipment and resources to help people through chemotherapy.

Please help support this fantastic cause by making a donation. Thank you for visiting my page, any donation no matter how big or small will be hugely appreciated.
