Richard Branson's support of Kitesurfers and Good Causes
EABR's Jason Rogers was a member of the Kite The Reef team that Branson generously supported in 2015
In this article on the Virgin website, Richard Branson talks of his love for kitesurfing and supporting good causes.
'Outside my family and the Virgin Group there are two things that I love most: kitesurfing and supporting a good cause. You can therefore understand how excited I am about Kite The Reef – an epic 10 day journey across the Great Barrier Reef, to raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease (MND/ASL) research.'
Jason Rogers was a member of the Kite The Reef team, and is an inspiration to the EABR team. Jason plays a key role in their aim to kite and windsurf over 1,000 kilometres from Lamu to Zanzibar in January 2017.
The team hope to emulate the Kite the Reef expedition member's success in raising funds for good causes, and their goal is to raise funds and awareness for two East African marine charities, and the Education Programmes they run among the local communities.
