When you see the title, what do you picture? More than likely 2 college athletes or some ultra athletic duo that’s been training for this adventure for years. Well can that image because these are just a couple of ordinary guys doing it for the love of adventure and to raise money for charity.
With the focus being on raising money for the Make-A-Wish foundation as well as brain tumor research, it’s easy to understand their motivation since one of the rowers’, James Whittle, mom suffered from a sever brain tumor in 2012 but made a complete and full recovery.
Tom Caulfield, James’ friend describes their accomplishment humbly.
“James and I have completed a transatlantic row, 3000 miles across The Atlantic, totally unsupported. Neither of us had ever held an oar or sailed a boat, so we hope we have proved that ordinary people can achieve incredible things.”
Born simply out of passion and a desire for doing good, this team will surely go on to accomplish great things and hope to inspire everyone to dream big and follow through, because no matter who you are or where you come from, greatness is waiting.
