The challenge is also trying to promote a healthy lifestyle to those living with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease. However, the reality is that everybody should be trying to lead a healthy lifestyle.
The crew want to use the Indian Ocean row as an opportunity to encourage school children to take up exercise and be inspired by the world around them.
The row will provide teachers with an event where pupils can chat to the crew – live – about a whole host of subjects from oceanography and geography to meteorology, marine life and conservation.
The crew can also take students on a “virtual tour” of the boat so that they feel like they are out on the water with them.
OUR STUDENT INFORMATION PACK
We are contacting schools across the United Kingdom to ask them if they would like to be involved with the challenge. We believe that there are many aspects surrounding the row that schools would be able to utilise to inspire their students and raise interest in certain topics, such as geography, meteorology, oceanography,
marine conservation etc.
