WHY DO THIS?

We all know people who have been affected by cancer and the devastating effect it can have on the friends and families of those affected. This reality stopped Joel in his tracks in February 2017 with a shock diagnosis of Oropharyngeal Cancer on his tonsil and associated spread to the lymph nodes in his neck. Joel received three individual bouts of surgical treatment including Trans Oral Robotic Surgery at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle. Through the expertise of internationally renowned surgeons, access to world class specialist equipment and unrivalled nursing care, Joel was lucky enough to be given the all clear in May 2017.

Joel was completely overwhelmed by the quality of the treatment and care he received at the Freeman Hospital, largely at the Northern Centre for Cancer Care. We wanted to launch an event to bring the CrossFit community, rowing fraternity and North East corporate network together to raise funds for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, which supports internationally significant cancer research and treatment at the Northern Centre for Cancer Care and directly benefits cancer patients from across the North East and Cumbria.
