Tame The Kraken | Row the Atlantic

$4,194 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 5 months

Tame the Kraken is an approved  501 (c)(3) !

My name is Tim Crockett and I’m going to row a 20ft boat, 'The Kraken', across the Atlantic ocean. I need your help to get to the starting line. Every donation large or small helps. 
I'm doing this for very good reason: as a holder of both American and British passports, and being a Special-Forces veteran, I am painfully aware that many US and UK soldiers are struggling with depression, anxiety, alienation and thoughts of suicide brought on by PTSD and the effects of traumatic brain injuries. The journey I face is my way to raise awareness, educate and to start connecting those who need help with those that are in a position to provide assistance.

My plan is to take part in the 2018 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, a race of more than 3,000 nautical miles from the Canary Islands to Antigua across the Atlantic Ocean. Considered by some to be one of the toughest challenges on earth. To put it into perspective, more people have scaled Everest or have journeyed into space than have rowed across the Atlantic. Even fewer have rowed it solo.

While I’ll be alone in the Atlantic, I need your help to get me there and by doing so you will be helping many others tame their own personal 'Kraken'.

Tame the Kraken is the first phase of a larger group initiative to bring awareness and support for those suffering with mental health issues. For more information please visit tamethekraken.org or theunseenwounds.org

Good Evening TTK Supporters,

I just wanted to say thank you to all of the support and donations we have received to date it's truly been great but we still have a long way to go so I thought I'd mention some other ways friends and family can help.

Direct Donations of money are always welcome and very much appreciated and let’s not forget; tax deductible! Please click the button at the right of the page or visit our Facebook page @RowtheAtlanticandTametheKraken

Another great way to raise awareness within your own business and motivate staff, suppliers or clients is to hold an event supporting a good cause such as Tame the Kraken (TTK). You can either come along to one of our TTK pre-arranged events or if you already have an event that you run or cover, why not include a charity element?

Whether it is a small local event or a nationwide opportunity; teaming up with us will provide excellent PR opportunities for your business. We can also support you in various ways including publicizing your event on our website and through our social media platforms and partners.

The main thing is to have fun with the giving and know that it is having a positive impact.

If you have any questions or request for more information about the row please email us at tamethekraken@gmail.com or message us on FB.
