Starting on 17th July, Rise Gym’s Tom, Steph, Ross and Josh are pushing themselves in a huge kayaking challenge all in the aid of Mind. 🙌
The challenge is 184 miles, 46 locks, including 4 men and 2 kayaks, on one of the busiest and most unforgiving waterways in the world… The River Thames. 🙊
They will be setting off from Lechlade, Gloucestershire and making their way through Southern England, before arriving in Teddington, where the Thames becomes tidal. From there they will make their way through London, navigating the choppy waters and fierce currents until the challenge is completed near the Thames Barrier. The challenge will take 4 days at 15 hours a day with minimal breaks…
The reason we picked mind to be the charity behind this challenge is that we feel that they are a fantastic charity that does brilliant work supporting people with mental health issues. 👊 They are a charity that echoes the ethos of Rise Gym and we’re proud to be doing it in their name. The more money we can raise, the better equipped they can be to support the people who desperately need it.
