Cameron did the Impossible
Cameron Bellamy, endurance athlete extraordinaire (who recently swam a gruelling 151km from Barbados to St Lucia in 56 hours straight!), has now overcome a so-called ‘impossible row’ with a six-member team rowing approximately 800 miles over seventeen days to cross the notorious Drake Passage: a body of water thought to have the roughest and coldest waters on earth! As in all his adventures Cameron’s aim was to raise funds for Ubunye’s ECD Programme!
