Our row across the Cook Strait will be symbolic of the resilience, strength, and support needed to live with and overcome mental illness.

Main image

This is our first fundraising event. In mid-April 2018, we will row from Picton Rowing Club, though Tory Chanel and across the unpredictable Cook Strait to Wellington Rowing Club. We want to show that challenges and obstacles can be tackled more easily and effectively when the struggle is shared between friends and professionals.

The crew rowing across will be

Tina Manker Represented Germany at 2012 Olympics

Johannah Kearney Represented New Zealand at International level

Rachel Gamble-Flint Represented Great Britain at International level

Eleanor Morris Rows for Wellington Rowing Club

Julia Richter Silver Medallist Representing Germany at 2012 Olympics

They will be supported by Tufi Sele, Tim Snedden and Heather Scott on the support boat.

The exact date of the event is weather dependent and will be released closer to the time. The event is planned to happen between 12 April and 16 April.

Use of Funds:

Your donations will be used to work with mental health professionals and teachers to develop programmes that will actually make a difference to young people in New Zealand. All actions will be informed by research and discussions with professionals.
