This July, I will be two of a 5-man crew which will attempt to cross the Balearic in an ocean-going row boat with nothing but some oars and SPF150.
The race is known as NOMAN is an Island: Race to End HPV Barcelona-Ibiza 2019 and it is in support of the effort to raise awareness about the HPV-related cancer epidemic and end it through universal HPV vaccination.
More about NOMAN:
Since 2013, NOMAN campaign has raised $3 million in the fight against HPV, the causal agent of 5% of all cancers. The funds raised from this race will help eradicate this virus from the face of the Earth, preventing millions of cancers in the process. We can accomplish this feat via universal vaccination for girls AND boys. In addition to prevention, the Foundation behind NOMAN is working hard to accelerate drug development for patients with advanced HPV-related cancer.

I have been impressed with this Foundation’s achievements since the Founders started the organization in 2010 after the loss of their mother to HPV-related cancer. My goal is to help them realize their dreams of ending suffering caused by HPV by raising GBP 10,000 in total.
