The Prize

This once in a lifetime opportunity allows you and up to five friends to create your very own Olympic crew, with the support of a US Olympic Rower past and present.

The US National Team rowers have set aside 21 days in the Autumn of 2021 to deliver an amazing rowing experience with an athlete exclusive to your group.

Your experience includes: a fascinating talk on the career highs and lows of the Athlete, a light training session on the rowing machines and, most importantly, an opportunity to try your hand in a quad boat accompanied by the Athlete.
The day is part of One Sporting World, a global athlete purpose project. Attendees must be 13 years of age or over.

The above experience will be delivered safely within the Covid-19 guidelines of the time of the event and maybe subject to slight alterations as a result.

Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, DC, New York and Philly.

 

The Cause

Ava Helene Atkinson was born on May 26, 2014, but because she was born so early, she experienced many health issues.

Ava was moved to the neo-natal unit where she was put on a ventilator to help her breathe. Hours later, Ava’s condition had not improved, and after discussions with the consultant it was decided that due to the severity of the health issues she had, we as parents had to make the most devastating decision of our lives, together with the care team, to withdraw treatment. Minutes after coming off the ventilator Ava passed away peacefully with her family around her.

Whilst at the hospital we were given a keepsake box in which we were able to have memories of Ava. These precious memories are there for us to look at and cherish. Her keepsake box has brought comfort to us all, so much so that we have decided we would like to put together our own memory boxes for other parents who have suffered the loss of a child.

We have decided to make these keepsake boxes ourselves and hope that these boxes will be looked at for years to come.
