Atlantic Row To Support Struggling Veterans

Donation protected

My name is Chris Thrall. I am a former Royal Marines Commando and Veteran of the Year for Inspiration for my work mentoring others and preventing veteran suicide.

In December 2024 I will captain a team of former military men across the Atlantic Ocean in a rowing boat.

Having overcome serious mental health challenges ourselves, our mission is to send a strong message of support to our brothers and sisters still battling their demons – HANG IN THERE because there is ALWAYS a light at the end of the tunnel.

In addition, we will highlight the issues bereaved service children face, such as adjusting to life after parental suicide or death on operations.

PLEASE SPARE A FIVER to help us accomplish our mission or SHARE OUR POSTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA (links below).

For details on our chosen charities, Alabaré and Scotty’s Little Soldiers, please see details further down.

The money you kindly donate will help cover mission expenses (25% of donations) and the rest (75% of donations) will go to the charities.

Should you be able to support us on a monthly basis, you can do so here:

Thank you from Chris & Oceans ELITE ... ☀️❤️




Alabaré Homes for Veterans provides supported accommodation to British Armed Forces veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming so. Support includes help with mental wellbeing and support accessing future employment.

Scotty’s Little Soldiers

When a parent dies, the impact on their child is significant. When that parent served in the Armed Forces, the impact is even greater with children often feeling they’ve lost their connection to the military community. Scotty’s Little Soldiers prevents that. Together, we can ensure the very best bereavement support remains available.
