Our chosen charity which is so close to our team’s hearts is Abbie’s Army. Team Atlantic Fusion needs to raise approximately £120,000 from corporate sponsorship and personal donations just to get to the start line. The largest expenditure is a £70,000 ocean rowing boat which has a similar re-sale value once the challenge is completed. All of these funds plus any additional funds will be donated to this extremely important charity. The charity was founded by the family of Abbie, who sadly passed at 6 years old from DIPG in 2011. As well as leading on DIPG research, Abbie’s Army is also there to support families with advice, information and resources when their child is diagnosed. Our row will help Abbie’s Army to fund crucial research into finding a cure. By supporting us, you will be part of the mission to provide support to families and hope that the battle against this aggressive cancer can be won.
