We're going the distance for a great cause to support youth mental health and wellbeing.

We are very keen to support the Key to Life Charitable Trust to ensure that young people have ongoing access to support when they need it.

After completing a marathon 42km Rowing Erg last December, Jim Potts and Mark Johnston were inspired to challenge themselves again to raise money in support of mental health.

On Friday 10th May, Jim and Mark have set themselves the goal of rowing 100km each. The idea behind the challenge is to raise awareness for youth mental health issues and to raise much needed funds for the Key To Life Charitable Trust.

To assist them in achieving their daunting target of 100km, Jim and Mark have managed to persuade a crew of 15 other staff members and parents who will sit along side them and row 100 minutes each in relay.

Kris Brewin, Ged Leicester, Udi and Marcel Delport, Onasai Auvaa, Daryl Williams, Daniel Mitchell, John Payne, Matt Cowie, Yvette and Richard Hall, Jonathan Ogg, Matt Tooman, Brendan Boreham and Sarah Couillault have all committed to doing 100 minutes of rowing each.

All funds raised will go towards the "I am hope" campaign.

Latest update

We did it!  28 May 2019

Thank you to all of the generous donors. For those of you that didn't see the updates on the day Mark and I managed to get through it in one piece.

I did a time of 8 hours 10 minutes and Mark 8 hours 15, both of us well inside what we were aiming for. Boy it was tough though - much harder than expected! The support rowers were excellent and really helped us through, particularly in the dark period when we were about 6 hrs in.

We have raised over $5000 which we are so happy with, and there are still a few more donations to come. Thank you to you all for your generosity in raising money for a very worthy cause.
