180km. 4 days. Pain.
From the 23rd-26th June 2013, 8 women from Corpus Christi College Boat Club will be rowing from Oxford to London to raise money for the eating disorder charity ‘Beat’. This charity is of particular significance to us because one member of our crew successfully overcame a severe eating disorder in part due to incredible support from Beat, alongside the motivation to build physical strength provided by rowing.
Over the next few months we will be training, fundraising and raising awareness for this event, and we hope that you will join us in our endeavours to raise money for the truly worthwhile and necessary work that Beat does to improve, and even save, the lives of thousands of eating disorder sufferers nationwide.
We will push our bodies to the limits to stop eating disorder sufferers from doing the same.
