wow! over 1500 raised - thank you

if I manage to get the hour record in the morning the total hits €1500! #incentive #TTSS

7 of 9 records set - small time to recover then I have the hour and half marathon @concept2 @samaritans #ttss

Seems simple enough - just over 111,000m in just under 7 hours of rowing 12 hours in total... No? #TTSS

Amazing support for a worthy cause guys #samaritans #TTSS

getting close to the target now guys - please donate for samaritans if you can

morning ;-) I'm 53% there for the donations - can you help me reach my goal? #TTSS

Hi guys - take a look at the schedule

Please take a look at my event

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On the 23rd August 2014 I ( Paul Buchanan ) will attempt to row and break 9 of the 40-49H Irish Indoor Rowing records on the Concept2 Rowing machine. The current records can be found here or see cover photo. They are the 500m, 1,000m, 5,000m, 6,000m, 30min, 10,000m, 60min, half marathon (21,097m) and full marathon (42,195m) in total this will add to 111,155m and take just under 7 hours of actual rowing time. In light of the sad passing of Robin Williams I am hoping to raise awareness of depression and hopefully some money for the Samaritans Ireland and Samaritans UK who are there for many people when there seems no one else is around.
