1 Million Meters for Karl

St. Patrick’s Rowing Club, Ringsend, Dublin 4 are hosting a major outdoor rowing fundraising event on the 30th of March 2019, to raise funds for a sick member.

Karl Doyle has been a member of his beloved rowing club, St. Patrick’s Rowing Club Ringsend from a young age. In the past, Karl was part of very successful rowing crews and has a genuine passion for rowing. Karl was diagnosed with leukemia a few years ago but was hoping to make his rowing comeback when he fully recovered. Unfortunately before Christmas, Karl’s cancer returned meaning he must undergo further treatment.

Members of St. Patrick’s Rowing Club are coming together in support of Karl and his family on this journey. They have devised a fundraising campaign called “A Million Meters for Karl”.  The aim is to row a million meters on stationary rowing machines outside the library in Ringsend on the 30th of March. Each machine will be linked to a big screen that will add up all the meters rowed by participants. The event will start at 8am and finish at 6pm.

The event promises to be a great day and a fantastic spectacle for all with the opportunity to donate to this great cause. They won’t stop until they have achieved A Million Meters for Karl!  #Meters4Karl
