On the 17th of June 2024, Tom Waddington is heading out on a truly inspirational and record breaking endeavour. To become the fastest man in history to row from Canada to the UK across the North Atlantic Ocean. Mind Oar Matter is a declaration that with enough commitment and determination we can overcome the physical and mental challenges we face, no matter how insurmountable they seem. This expedition will allow Tom to share his message, long-backed by science, that sport and exercise elevates mood and mental well-being. Tom’s passion for this cause, comes from dealing with monumental loss and grief of his own.

The mission is simple: to promote mental health awareness, so suffering people will take action, seek help and get physically active via sports or exercise! Tom is passionate about raising £50,000 over the course of his row, for the charity Mind, a charity that provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. With a mission to not give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.
