Oar-some marathon rowing challenge

Danny Cullinane, a Senior Lecturer in the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences, is attempting to row further than he has ever rowed before, by completing a marathon distance (42,195 metres) in aid of the charity True Athlete Project.

As someone who is truly passionate about sport, balancing his teaching duties with playing and watching sports, he is also a Trustee with the charity which aims to build a more compassionate world through sport.

On Tuesday 25 October, Danny will undertake his challenge in the LJMU Sport Building.

He’s hoping to raise £950 to support scholarships for the True Athlete Project’s Global Mentoring Programme, so that young athletes can benefit from the guidance of a mentor and be a better person for themselves and the communities in which they live.
