Cancer Research UK Ambassador Liam Ronan: Rowing the Big Sea

Time for another Cancer Research UK Campaigns Ambassador showcase everyone! This time it's one of my more daring fellow ambassadors - Liam Ronan.

Liam is twenty seven years old and is passionate supporter of Cancer Research UK and works very as an Ambassador. He is also gearing up for a huge challenge which is taking place during the last week of September.

A year ago, Liam was sitting in a Holborn pub and got chatting to three other men - Kieran Lynch, Jim O'Malley and George Adams. They all decided to raise money for charity by rowing the Channel together, despite never having rowed before. That's 350 miles. In the sea. In a little boat. For charity.

These four men have bonded and trained really hard for over a year now and are preparing to complete the challenge in just a few weeks time. The Olympics have really spurred them on and inspired them to push themselves hard. They aim to get from Dover to Calais in just six hours and raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK and the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.

I'm terrified of the sea. I'm also quite lazy. I am in awe of anyone who can train hard enough to complete a challenge like this. I am in awe of anyone who can get into a little rowing boat and sit on it in the deep blue sea for hours and hours. These men are incredible and deserve our support.

Please spare any cash you can and sponsor Liam and his friends - show them some support for their epic challenge.

Good luck Liam, Kieran, Jim and George!!!!
