The 24 Hour Row held in three locations on the Northern Beaches of Sydney has raised over $40,000 in its second year. 2,512,344 m’s rowed with an average of 314,043 per ergo in the 24 hours. With the support of NSW Surf Lifesaving, organisers Mel and Nathan Wellings were able to hold the event concurrently at Avalon, South Curl Curl and Collaroy where they smash their fundraising to over triple from last year.
‘This is huge! This effort will make a difference. Thank you to all who participated,supported and donated.’ said Mel Wellings. Funds raised were split between One Eighty Avalon and Gotcha4Life.
This event will be an annual one and growing each year. We hope to reach our Southern Beaches and interstate clubs in Queensland.
