BENEFITING: The Fistula Foundation
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2016
My name is Colin Hammond and on April 28 I leave Seattle on board PSP Logistics in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.
Fistula is a dreadful condition which can affect women in 3rd world countries who have problems in child birth without access to healthcare taken for granted in the West. See https://www.fistulafoundation.org/ for more information. The company I have been working for (Astellas) sponsor the Action on Fistula campaign which inspired me to raise funds.
For UK people, UK sites won't work for this US based foundation and $14=£10 approx.
I race to Panama, New York, Northern Ireland and the Netherlands before finishing in London July 31.
