The 2019 event

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.

ENDURANCE CHALLENGE
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.

THE CAUSE

Carrol reunited with his family in Rwanda

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.
