Watch: These incredibly inspiring women rowed across the Pacific unsupported
When women get together to help other women, there is no limit to what can be achieved.
A group of 6 women rowed 8,446 miles across the South Pacific Ocean, from America to Australia, to support others who have had to face adversity and overcome life-changing events.
They spent more than 9 months at sea on Doris, their pink Rossiter boat, and rowed for more than 6200 hours from San Francisco, California to Cairns, Australia.
Their aim was to raise $360,000 to support two charities: Walking With the Wounded and Breast Cancer Care. The World Record setting team of 6 women has currently raised almost $61,000 and continues to work hard to reach their goal.
But what the coxless crew really wants is “to inspire all women to reach for their own potential and to meet the challenges that life throws at them.”
They believe that we all have to deal with our own Pacific Ocean at some point in our lives and there’s not better way to do it with the support of awesome women.
