The inaugural Canary Wharf Rowathon, brought to you by Hope and Homes for Children and proudly supported by Canary Wharf Group, St. James’s Place and Concept 2, comprised a number of challenging events throughout the day.
This was the ultimate challenge, open to teams of two—rowing side-by-side as doubles on two machines for the marathon distance of 42.2km. Each rower took on this marathon distance and the two machines were linked, so a team’s overall boat speed and finishing time was generated by the average of individual efforts.

By taking part in the Canary Wharf Rowathon, rowers were also doing something big to tackle a hidden global crisis.
Orphanages don’t protect children, they harm them; and every metre rowed helps Hope and Homes for Children ensure children like Carrol, shown above, always grow up in loving families, never orphanages.
