Ten London Wasps fans will be kayaking the non-tidal length of the River Thames (135 miles) from Sunday May 26th to Thursday May 30th 2013. The event is part of a year-long drive to raise money for Cancer Research with a target of raising £10,000 from the challenge.
Simon Tattersall from Beaconsfield RFC told wasps.co.uk, "Cancer has impacted upon all of our families at some point in the recent years and we are determined to help with this worthwhile charity especially with Cancer now effecting one in three people. The challenge has been made harder by the fact that none of us have ever kayaked before and we are looking at spending 8-10 hours a day in the kayaks followed by an evening at a campsite."
You can support this event on their Just Giving Page here or by texting THKA60 £x to 70070. Sponsorship opportunities are also available on t-shirts and on the boat.
