ALL OF YOUR DONATION WILL BE GOING TO THE CHARLIE WALLER MEMORIAL TRUST

In January 2018 four young twenty-somethings Henry, Max, Paddy & Hector are pioneering a pedal-powered ocean crossing to raise awareness for mental health and help put an end to societal stigma. We understand that mental health is an issue with no boundaries but crucially we are four young men situated in the demographic that is most affected by suicide, so our narrative is aimed at getting young people (particularly men) to get talking about their mental health. With the help of our chosen charity the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, we also aim to help educate people on the signs of depression. All donations will take us a huge step closer towards reaching our goal, to ultimately make a positive impact on the lives of suffers and the people close to them. 

   

Pedal The Pond is unique in that we are crossing the Atlantic in an ocean-ready pedalo. Upon completion we hope to break at least 3 world records for the fastest pedalo, fastest man powered crossing, youngest pedal powered crossing and first pedal powered crossing of this part of the atlantic. We leave Gran Canaria in January 2018 and plan on getting to Antigua in 30-40 days. It is a 3000 mile journey of non-stop pedalling in two hour shifts, day and night. All going well, we believe we can change people’s perception of a nautical crossing and encourage more to do the same in aid of good causes. 

         

We are lucky enough to be working with the skilled team at Rannoch Adventure, who are market leaders and innovators in the ocean rowing industry. Together we have meticulously designed a vessel that is solely pedal-powered, and thanks to some sponsorship have managed to lay down the money for the build. We have been lucky enough to get to this position because of our proud sponsors Orbitsound, DHL, All About Bricks, Savills and James Mossman Ltd. 
           
With your help in this campaign, we hope to raise as much money as possible for The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust [CWMT]. CWMT Started in memory of a young man who took his own life due to depression in his late twenties. When Charlie's parents tell you he may still be here today if people's abilities to spot signs of depression were better, it makes you realise exactly why action needs to be taken. CWMT's funds are focussed on young people and education, as well as training GPs and clinicians. They also run projects that help to build mentally healthy work places.
We have some great things to give away in return for your generosity. The bigger your donation, the bigger the reward :)
We look forward to having you involved with our cause.
Thank you 
Henry, Max, Hector & Paddy, team Pedal The Pond.
