Row, Row, Row Your Boat.... 150 Miles Down the Thames for Kidney Research UK
At an ungodly hour of the morning of July 29th 2015, a band of hardy Agecrofters (Aaron Jackson, Ben Charles, Matthew Bucknall, and Ali Chapman) will set off from Lechlade to cover the 150 miles of the Thames to London in an open rowing boat.
Endorsed by British Rowing and ourselves here at Agecroft RC, the team are aiming to overcome miles, locks, blistered hands, and sore legs and backs to finish as close to Tower Bridge as time, tide, and the Port of London authority will allow.
They'll be taking nothing with them but a change of kit and your support. Their chosen charity is Kidney Research UK. Kidney Disease is common in the UK, often remaining undiagnosed and untreated because there are no outward symptoms until the disease is significantly advanced.
Aaron himself was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease and Acute Focal Segmented Glomerulasclerosis following routine blood tests and he has learned how, with the support of family, friends, and the wonderful doctors and nurses of the NHS this condition can be managed and moderated, and he can even row 150 miles with his friends! Read more about Aaron's story and motivations on his Just Giving Page.
So please think about donating if you can. With your support, the miles will go a little easier for our Agecroft team. We wish them lots of luck for the day!
