To help participants off the start line, Better Gym is opening their doors and giving free access every Tuesday and Wednesday in February to everyone who has signed up to take on the challenge.

Vicky Thornley, GB Olympic silver medallist and The Great Row Ambassador, says: “I’m a huge supporter of this campaign – not only because I love the sport, but also because the cause means a lot to me. I’ll be taking part in this challenge and you can follow my journey and get training tips and advice via my website and my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts. I hope you’ll join me in taking part in this incredible challenge and raising lots of money for this great cause. Together we will beat cancer.”
