The team, who are sponsored by Affidea Ireland, a leading independent provider of diagnostic imaging services including MRI, CT, Ultrasound, DXA and X-ray, have raised up to€12,500 to date and are targeting €20,000. All proceeds go directly to CUH’s Children’s Unit.
The rowers Seán Underwood, Eoin O’Farrell, Patrick O’Connor, and Thomas Browne fly out to La Gomera in the Canary Islands on November 29th. They will be reunited with their race boat, Saoirse to make final preparations. On Tuesday, 12th December, the Relentless crew will begin their race journey from Sebastien La Gomera.
