Rowie Cycles for the ‘Your Day Foundation’


Swindon Dolphin Masters’ swimmer, Rowie Meers asks Dolphins to support the Your Day Foundation cycle ride from Lands End to John O’Groats which starts this Thursday, 25th of October.


The Your Day Foundation is a trust set up in memory of her husband, Alex Meers, the aim of which is to represent a positive impact on the younger generation.

In 2005 Alex was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia and despite a courageous fight he unfortunately died in May 2006, leaving Rowie and three daughters, Imo, Tilda, and Lilly (all Dolphin swimmers).

The Land’s End to John O’ Groats Bike Ride Challenge is the first of many such adventures aimed at raising money for the foundation. This year the money raised will be split between 3 charities – Children With Leukaemia, The Soil Association’s new Apprenticeship Scheme and The Ellen MacArthur Trust (along with the charity that inspired Ellen, “A Chacun Son Cap” for those sponsoring in France). It is hoped that over the years the foundation will grow and that other challenges will be taken on by the following generation – Alex’s children, nephews and nieces and their friends and families.
