Christ Church/Kellogg rowers to raise funds for Fulham Reach Boat Club

September 9, 2020

Kellogg Junior Research Fellow and Christ Church/Kellogg Boat Club Secretary Charmaine Lang, and three of her fellow club members, take on a two day rowing challenge to raise funds for the London charity, Fulham Reach Boat Club.

We think it’s fair to say that rowing is not the most diverse of sports. However, the Christ Church/Kellogg Boat Club are taking steps to help rectify this by building a partnership with Fulham Reach Boat Club, a charity aiming to unlock the potential of young people through rowing.

To help raise funds for the club, on Friday 18 September, Kellogg Junior Research Fellow and Christ Church/Kellogg Boat Club Secretary Charmaine Lang, and three of her fellow club members, will row the 115mi/180km from Christ Church Boat Club, Oxford to Fulham Reach Boat Club in London, over two days!

Fulham Reach use rowing to help their students develop teamwork, focus, confidence and ambition. Based in the South East of England, they aim is to diversify participation in rowing and give as many students the chance to row, no matter their background or circumstances. As their website states, “The vision for our charity is a simple one, Rowing for All.”

Charmaine commented, “We would love to be able to make a lasting impact in the lives of children who wouldn’t have access to this magnificent sport otherwise!”
