Austcham 10Km DB challenge 09 - ALS awareness

12 Gals out of the 18 rowing crews rowing thru 10km non-stop under the scorching sun.

All in support for creating the awareness of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (A.L.S.)
- is a progressive,[1] fatal, neurodegenerative disease caused by the degeneration of motor neurons, the nerve cells in the central nervous system that control voluntary muscle movement.

Well, in simple layman's term, if you've watched the true story of "One Litre of Tears", you get an idea of what that disease does...

No mean feat for the Team, with huge support from Team OCBC rowers who helped steered teh ship.
The Team enmerge 19th out of the 25 placing, considering 12 ladies out of the 18crew.
