Oliver's Birthday Great River Race fundraiser for Momentum
Fundraising for Momentum
Verified by JustGiving
On Saturday 16th September (his 15th birthday!!), Oliver is part of an AJAX Explorers crew taking part in The Great River Race, London’s River Marathon. It’s a spectacular boat race covering 21.6 miles from Millwall in the East to Richmond in the West, travelling under 15 of London’s famous bridges. It's the largest event of it's kind with 2,500 competitors across 300 crews from America, Australia, and many European countries.
The crew are taking part to raise funds for Momentum, a charity who support children with cancer and life-challenging conditions, and their families, helping them to cope more easily whatever the outcome. Working across London, Surrey and Sussex, they partner with ten local hospitals who refer families to them following their child’s diagnosis
In the last year Momentum supported 430 families through their child's serious illness diagnosis and treatment, or those who had sadly experienced a bereavement.
If you can, please donate a few £'s to the show your support for the birthday boy and his crew mates, as they take on this challenge!
