The challenge kicks off in December when Jack will row 4,500 nautical miles from Portugal to Miami as he attempts to raise for £500,000 Brainstrust and CALM.
To support his efforts, Jardine Motors is providing a Land Rover Discovery to help Jack transport his specially-designed boat from the UK to Portugal and during his pre-event training challenges around the country, which recently included a marathon while carrying a 26kg rowing machine.
“Rowing from Portugal to Miami is going to be an immense challenge, both physically and mentally, but one of the main difficulties is actually getting to the start line. It’s why I’m so grateful to be working with a fantastic brand like Jardine Motors and I want to thank them for their incredible support. Now I can’t wait to get started and make history together.”
Mark Scramell, Jaguar Land Rover Brand Director, added:
“Jack’s story is one of passion, resilience and determination, which are all values that Jardine Motors Group celebrates. That’s why, as soon as we heard about Jack and United We Conquer, we knew we had to offer our support. As members of the Armed Forces Covenant, we’re passionate about supporting those who serve, and with mental health awareness forming a huge part of JMG’s culture, we’re proud to advocate for Jack’s chosen charities including CALM.
“Jack needs a vehicle he can trust to get to the all-important starting line in Portugal – and what better car to get him there than the iconic Land Rover Discovery? We wish Jack all the success in this challenge, which we know will inspire many others.”
