Hi Guys & Gals,
I thought I'd share details of this expedition with you from Downunder. Firstly because it involves a long distance trip in a RIB but secondly the bloke doing it is raising funds for an awareness program for prostate cancer checks. I've met Peter Jenkins, in fact we're involved with putting this boat together but I also thought it would be great if you were interested in following the trip. if you do.....enjoy
Honda Over The Top
The Honda Over The Top Expedition has been developed by brothers Peter and Phillip Jenkins who have a family history of Prostate Cancer. Both wanted to do something ‘Over The Top’ to generate funds and awareness on the key preventative actions for Prostate Cancer. So they decided to go 'Over The Top' literally… in 8.6 metre rigid inflatable boat (RIB) commonly referred to as a ‘rubber ducky’.
Beginning in Sydney, the Expedition will cover more than 9,500 kilometre stopping at 26 locations along the coast, ending in Perth. Along the Expedition, Peter and Phillip will cover some of Australia’s most untouched, harsh and beautiful coastline particularly in the northern most tips of Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia.
At each stop (in the populated areas), Peter and Phillip will have prearranged presentations at Yacht and Boat Clubs to generate awareness and raise funds to help fight this deadly and relatively ‘unknown’ killer of men.
Their mission is to raise $200,000 to continue research into effective Prostate Cancer detection and treatment and to actively educate and raise awareness of the need for men to be ‘double tested’ for Prostate Cancer.
