The 24/7 Challenge

August 01, 2020 - December 31, 2020

Life at sea means that seafarers spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at sea and often for many, many months.

Following the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions around crew changes, hundreds of thousands of seafarers are stranded at sea well beyond their contract length. Many of them are feeling isolated, disconnected from family, and mental health is being tested to the limit.

Join us in The 24/7 Challenge in support of seafarers and their families at this time of crisis: run, dance, bake, climb, knit, jog, sing, row, walk, paint, cycle, quiz, swim – it can be anything relating to the numbers 2,4 and 7!

Taking part is simple
