Through Super Saturday we would like to bring awareness and much needed financial support to the Caritas Christie Hospice where Sarah was until her passing.
We have been wanting to put together an event like this for some time to remember Sarah, but have felt no challenge we came up with has done her name and legacy as one of the toughest international oarswomen justice.
"Modern medical developments are improving outcomes for patients everyday. But some patients still face poor outcomes, and they and their support network of family and friends face significant challenges. Caritas Christie Hospice provides support for patients and their loved ones during this difficult time, aspiring to provide the best care and environment at such a precious time. Sarah's last few months in Caritas were filed with warmth, music and most importantly, family. Initiatives such as the art and music program helped create an open and caring environment, which means our memories of that time are much more positive and we were better able to support Sarah. Supporting an athlete in this challenge means supporting families as well as patients, at a time when they need it the most". Bill Tait
