Elijah's Star is named after baby Elijah, born prematurely, but a much-loved son and brother.
Dean Frost, Philip Bigland, Mac McCarthy and Jason Kerr successfully rowed the Atlantic Ocean in 41 days, 2 hours and 44 minutes and reached the finish line on Saturday 22nd January 2022. Together, they have raised over £300,000 for the charity Action Medical Research.
CJC is honoured to be able to support such a great cause.
Surpassing their goal of £200,000 to help fund research to save and change the lives of babies and children. In doing this they hope to shine a spotlight on the impact that premature birth has on babies and their families.
This is a cause that sits close to our hearts, especially as some of our team have had a similar experience in their family life. The names of these premature babies have been added to Elijah’s Star boat wrap.
We've really enjoyed following the teams rowing story, each episode giving us an insight into how they were tackling this incredible challenge. Well done to the team!
