ROWING A MARATHON ON A CONCEPT 2 ROWING MACHINE 

MY MOTIVATION
After the Iraq and Afghan wars, Britain is no longer engaged in front-line conflict which is a very good thing.  However there are many veterans from Iraq, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland, the Falklands and other conflicts, who are living with very considerable physical and mental issues; for them the battle continues.  As an ex-military man myself, I am genuinely concerned that, with the resulting reduced publicity for our Armed Forces, the plight of these veterans is going to be overlooked - they need and deserve our support all the time. There are many charities who do incredible work with our veterans and they need our continual support - please join me in supporting one of them - a really innovative and inspiring charity -  'Veterans With Dogs'
