Mark Esom and Murray West will be joining four more Get A-Head supporters, grabbing their paddles and hopping into their K2 Kayaks this June to increase the profile of Get A-Head, an independent cancer charity supporting those with head and neck diseases and cancers
The challenge consists of three teams of two in double kayaks, who will set off from Birmingham with the aim of arriving in London within 48 hours. With well over 100 miles to cover and as many locks, this is really is a challenge not to be taken lightly!
The teams are made up of people who have had personal experience of rare forms of Head and Neck cancer, Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) or Medullary Thyroid Cancer (MTC). Get A-Head raises funds towards vital research, and this challenge will be certain to raise the profile and funds for both of these causes.
Team one: Carl Turbitt and Steven Turbitt
Team Two: Tom Bromwich and Mark Lawton
Team Three: Mark Esom and Murray West
