Heart FM Kayak Challenge

On Monday 2nd October, Gemma Hill from Heart Breakfast set out on an epic kayaking challenge. 
In just 5 days, she’s kayaking from London to Birmingham (over 150 miles). This is no easy task; according to livestrong.com, kayaking burns nearly double the calories per hour than cycling.
We’re delighted to have made the kit for Gemma Hill and the Heart Breakfast team’s challenge. They needed a durable, bright product with clear branding, so there was no better choice.
We made vests, jackets and t-shirts to ensure the team complete the event wearing products regarded amongst the best technical clothing on the market.
The event is being run as part of Global’s Make Some Noise campaign. The charity helps youngsters and their families who need help living with illnesses, disabilities or a lack of opportunity within the community.
Since 2014, Global’s Make Some Noise have supported 135 projects to help youngsters, with fundraising efforts such as Gemma Hill’s Kayak Challenge helping fund vital support for people in need.
So far, Gemma is doing well. She’s half way through the challenge despite an injured shoulder which is restricting her ability to paddle. It has to be said; the willingness to go on to complete the challenge is amazing and we can do nothing but commend her.
Look out over the next few days for a Scimitar page dedicated to the challenge. You can give to this amazing cause by clicking here.
In the meantime, here’s a video from yesterday and a few images from the first three days of the event. We will be providing coverage of the final two days of Gemma’s progress across our Facebook, Twitter & Instagram accounts.

Heart’s Kayak Challenge – Day 2 Highlights
Yesterday was a really bad day ? – Gemma’s shoulder went so she was struggling to paddle. We were so close to abandoning the challenge but what did she do? She INSISTED to carry Floaty Boaty all the way to the end!
