1st goal done, Thanks. Karen's campaign continues.

I am part of a small team raising money to help Karen get the funds to row across the Atlantic from the Canaries to the Caribbean.  Karen is a good friend of mine and we have completed many adventures and challenges together. She is aiming to be the first Irish Woman to row solo across the Atlantic, promoting female participation in adventure sports. This representation by Karen of females in this rugged arena is one that I strongly believe in and it runs parallel with the  fantastic work of the  initiative 'If she can't see it, She can't be it'.
Karen is an amazing endurance athlete and has completed unsupported solo challenges by kayak and bike in some of the harsher environments around the world. Cycling across Canada and the USA, Cycling from Alaska to San Francisco, From Nordkapp to Helsinki and circumnavigating Ireland by kayak to name but a few. She has always done these journeys independently, and so we are doubly keen to assist her in this her most audacious challenge. We just need to support her in buying the boat.  We would really appreciate any and all contributions to bring this plan to fruition. Karen will do the rest and we will have some story to follow. Thank you for joining us on the journey. #shecando2021
