East Rows West on Behalf of ChildFund Rugby

Personal message

ChildFund Rugby is really grateful to the East Rows West team for taking on the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge while raising funds for our award-winning sport for development program.

The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is a 3000 nautical mile unsupported row from the Canary Islands to Antigua. The boys will carry all their own food, make water and row 24 hours a day in 2 hour shifts in this epic adventure. Check out more at www.eastrowswest.com

This will be done all in support of the Child Fund Rugby Program. The program uses tag rugby to teach children and young people a range of valuable life skills, which equips them to overcome challenges, inspire positive social change and pass it back to their communities.

For Martin, Matthew and Robert, "rugby is a sport that has given us all a huge amount of opportunity and taught us a lot in life. We think its a great way to educate young people especially about the importance of values and hard work. Its also what brought us together and has given us all friends for life. The opportunity to help improve the lives of children from disadvantaged backgrounds in Asia is something we are very passionate about and look forward to visiting the communities to share our knowledge and experiences as well as raising money for this fantastic cause."
