They did it! Congratulations to everyone involved for a brilliant event.
On Sunday morning, at 10.53 a.m., the Jacobs University rowing team and supporters crossed the finishing line: after 3078 kilometers and 22 hours and 53 minutes they covered the distance which separates Damascus from Bremen on ergometers. The “ergathon” raised worldwide publicity, with rowers from Canada, the USA, and Greece taking part. The money was given to the “Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund” and will help finance measures to support the integration of refugees in North Bremen.
