#54 – Frank Rothwell

Published May 30, 2021

Helen meets 70 year-old Frank Rothwell who raised £1 million rowing the Atlantic solo.

Inspired by his brother-in-law’s battle with dementia, Frank Rothwell explains why he took on the 3,000-mile Talisker Whisky Atlantic race alone, aged 70, arriving early after 56 days at sea.

Frank raised more than a million pounds for Alzheimer’s Research UK & hopes it will make a difference supporting the charity’s scientists in their quest to find ground-breaking ways of treating the disease many years before symptoms show.
