Event: The Great River Race, on 16 September 2023
We work with families to support seriously ill children.


As a group of Ajax Sea two crews will be take part in the Great River Race - https://greatriverrace.org.uk/ on Saturday 16th of September. We have two crews this year, a boat of Explorers - none of whom have taken part in anything like this before. We also have a boat with leaders and parents - none of who'm have rowed in an event like this before!

The race is over 21.6 miles from Millwall in East London to Richmond in Surrey. About 400 boats will compete in the race.

We are looking to support a local children's charity called Momentum -https://www.momentumcharity.org/

Momentum are based in East Molesey, and 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 they supported 430 families through their child's serious illness diagnosis and treatment, or those who had sadly experienced a bereavement.

Your help to support them by sponsoring us is greatly appreciated!

Leaders and parent: Jan, Alex, Andy, Simon, and Nathen

Explorer youth boat: Oliver, Axel, Molly, James, Oscar and Nick
