Support Lia on Her Journey Across The Pacific Ocean

Follow your fear to find your destiny

Welcome to my crowd-funding initiative! colorful-star

I would like to invite you to buy a mile or 2, or 50 and dedicate that mile/s to an inspirational woman—a woman who has inspired you in your life.

Part of my motivation is to raise funds, but the primary goal is to encourage me to keep rowing on the days when the rowing is really tough. And there will be those days. There may be many. I can’t think of anything more motivating to get me out of my bunk, than rowing in the name of 35-50 women per day – women who have in turn inspired others.

Email me a photograph (if you have one) and pen a quick line as to why this woman has inspired you, because I want to row each and every one of these fabulous women with me across the Pacific Ocean.

My grandmother was a very positive woman, who always thought she could see the sun even when it wasn’t shining. We called it ‘Granny sun.’

My mother worked as a headmistress of an elementary school until she retired. She taught me strength and leadership by example, and to thank those for whom there is often little thanks.
