Marduk Atlantic Challenge

Donation protected
On the 12th of December 2023, we - Alex, George, Adam and Jack - will embark on a challenge of a lifetime - The World's Toughest Row – a 3,000 mile unassisted row across the Atlantic Ocean, from La Gomera, Canary Islands, to Antigua, the Caribbean. As Team Marduk, we will be rowing 2 hours on and 2 hours off in rotation, in support of Head Up and Bowel Cancer UK.

All funds raised on this page will be split equally between our two charities as we have been very fortunate to have Chubb European Group, as our exclusive race sponsor, fund our race budget.

Head Up is a new charity founded by four British Army Veterans (including George and Adam!) to tackle the rising rates of mental ill-health and suicide in the forces community.

While psychological treatment for veterans is already available, much of this is offered within military settings which can trigger further distress. Head Up’s unique solution is a free, self-referred, positive-mindset programme for both current and former Forces personnel, delivered via a non-militarised seven day retreat. We want this challenge to raise the profile of Head Up and give the charity a wider platform to discuss mental health and the high suicide rates within the veteran community.

The second charity Team Marduk are fundraising for is Bowel Cancer UK. Alex lost a family member due to Bowel cancer - a disease that is not talked about as frequently or as openly as other cancers, despite being the country’s second biggest cancer killer. Bowel cancer is a disease that is taking the lives of a growing number of younger people, despite the fact that with early diagnosis it is very treatable.

We hope to raise funds that will go towards promoting better awareness of Bowel cancer, including educating the public on warning signs, symptoms and the risk factors that increase the likelihood of this cancer. Funds will also go towards continuing Bowel Cancer UK’s fantastic research work, which has already had such an impact on our understanding of the disease.

We will be raising funds for HEADUP and BOWEL CANCER UK  and we are proudly supported by our title sponsor CHUBB, the world’s largest publicly traded property and casualty insurance company.
