The nonstop 24hours ergo challenge, to raise funds for beyondblue, finished at 8am on Saturday morning (24th Jan) with a total of 321,977metres rowed!
The final countdown of the last minute involving the 400 plus parkrunners present, was one of the club's memorable moments.
The team of Jonathon Clifford, Lachlan Patey, Memphis Bourne Blue, Emily Harcombe, Arjun Lewis, Evan Gresham and Ben Homer, together with Ben Smith, Claire Locker and Gunilla Burrows during the day have achieved their target of 300,000 meters and no doubt achieved the fundraising target of $1000, not including the surprise donation of $2000 from Port Waratah! What a way to get behind an event like this!
It is not too late to donate if you still want to. Please find all the details in our earlier post.
Thank you to all whom have supported the event and thank you also to our wonderful crew members for the initiative and execution of such a terrific club community orientated event. The spirit of the Newcastle Rowing Club is in good hands indeed!
