The challenge will be supported with regular blog feeds and a live tracker to allow our supporters and the media and follow our progress in the lead up to and during the row itself.  After the event, we plan to organise a series of speaking events to tell the story of Row the Amazon 2015, and our sponsors will be given a prominent profile throughout. Friends and family, based in the UK, will keep the website constantly refreshed and up to date with video, photographs and text, to maintain interest, with regular bulletins to national, regional and local media channels.
