Row the Atlantic Ocean 2020 - Parkinson's Awareness

Row the Atlantic Ocean 2020 – Parkinson’s Awareness

Meet Liz Dennett. Liz was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2014, 5 weeks before her 44th birthday. Since then Liz has been raising awareness to try and show people that a diagnosis doesn’t mean the end of your life. Liz has always been a keen runner and has completed many marathons in her time. She has also taken up paddle boarding and competes in Canicross, Bikejor and dog triathlon events.

Next year Liz will be part of a time taking part in the Brain Waves Challenge. The 2020 “Brain Waves” Challenge involves rowing across the Atlantic and Indian Oceans – creating a unique environment to generate critical and invaluable research data for Parkinson’s Disease and PTSD, directly from those living with these conditions.

This remarkable test of teamwork, body and mind will also aim to achieve two incredible world firsts: The first female to row across two oceans in the same year; the first people to row non-stop, continent to continent, between Australia and Africa.

During their time on the water the crew will have to overcome many obstacles. Sea sickness, exhaustion, weight loss, big weather and towering seas but on the flip side they will see the most amazing beauty through sunsets and sunrises, the night sky and marine life. Nature at it’s best and worst.
