Our Honored 250 Club Members

This place is reserved for our Heroes!
Club 250 Members will be asked to submit their name and picture of themselves, so we can properly recognize them here.
In addition to this recognition, we would ask you to write a personal, motivating note, which will be added in our cabin and will keep us on track for our 3000 miles journey

Korey Stevenson and Fam.

``I thought I was at my last end. Newborns and no partner, I was lost. Mat, you pushed me to do more. You guided me to be better. And I did. I'm excited to see your next endeavor and I hope you know that River, Ryker and I will be watching you sail across a smooth sea.``

Jake Nix

“There are people in this world that bring out the best in you as a person. Those that come into your life and feel like an old friend instantly. Mat and Ben are the kind of people who at their core see life differently than the average person, and make the world around them better as a result. The way you two approach life is an inspiration, and while most people rowing across the ocean would sound crazy to me, anything short of a 1st place finish for you two seems improbable, if not impossible. Can’t wait to cheer you on and proud of what you are both selflessly doing regardless the outcome.``

Adam and Stephanie Cox

``Many people won't understand what you are doing or why you are doing it! Don’t worry about that. Remember, it’s your race. It's you vs. you out there on the open ocean. You've trained and prepared so give it all you've got, stay disciplined when it's hard, keep a positive attitude and forge your mind to take you farther than you ever thought possible.``


``You got this Mat & Ben! Just remember one thing....You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and do it courageously. So proud of you both and can't wait to celebrate when yall get back!``
