Fundraiser of the month – June 2018 -Justin Searle

One of our amazing Area Coordinators Rhona’s husband, Justin Searle, took on the challenge of rowing a marathon on a Concept2 rower on 22nd June 2018.

Justin said before his challenge “Rowing a marathon on an ergo (static rowing machine) is no mean feat. The furthest I have ever rowed on one so far is 10k and any regular ergo-rower will tell you that feels like hell in itself. To complete this challenge, I will need to row 42195 metres…I feel sick already!!  It will be physically challenging but even more so mentally.”

He managed to complete it in three hours and five minutes and raised an amazing £1010! Thank you Justin for all your rowing. You’re a superstar!
