Race the Thames is all about bring the value of sport to people, especially those who don't value sport themselves. That's what team work does, it encourages people to do things they didn't think possible.
LYR's core programme Active Row has been doing this for young people, who need it the most, for years. We know and have seen the power of sport, especially rowing. The power behind the sport are the life skills it nurtures, giving our students a tangible self value, a reason to back themselves.
We have a volunteer programme which helps our students place this value in aspirational jobs and career paths inspired by people like you, those who are Racing the Thames, and encourages them to take opportunities to break through glass ceilings.
