On Saturday, 30 November 2019, David Rayment will be competing in the Head of the Yarra rowing regatta in Melbourne in a coxed eight. He and a number of members in his crew from Leichhardt Rowing Club are using this event to raise funds for the Sydney based Women's and Girls' Emergency Centre (WAGEC).
WAGEC is a non-government, not-for-profit charitable organisation that delivers a range of crisis and early intervention accommodation and support services to women, children and young people, and families who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and/or domestic and family violence. More detail on what the Centre does can be found here.
To donate please visit David’s “Every Day Hero” page for this event here.
Donations of any amount are welcome, and all donations over $2 are tax deductible (just be sure to click the box for your receipt to be emailed to you).
Every Day Hero takes a percentage of every donation. If you wish to avoid that from happening, you can always donate to the charity directly by going to the following webpage: https://www.givenow.com.au/wagecfinancialsupport
Please help David spread the word by sharing the link above with anyone you think might be willing to support the centre.
The Head of the Yarra is a gruelling 8km time-trial regatta for coxed eights. The course winds from within the heart of Melbourne to the Hawthorn Rowing Club navigating through 11 bridges and some serious hairpin turns. Current entries suggest approximately 2,500 athletes are participating.
