her mission to row the Pacific Ocean. She is doing
this to raise money for Charlotte Cleverley-
Bisman. Here is some more information about the
Charlotte Cleverley-Bisman born on the 24 November
2003 on Waiheke Island was diagnosed with
meningitis at a very young age. Both of her arms and
legs were amputated, as the meningitis affected her
limbs. She is a determined fighter that doesn’t let her
cause hold her back. She is now 11 and does most of
the things her friends can do. As Charlotte would say
“No Limits No fear Just fun”.
What is Meningitis?
Meningitis is when the central nervous
system (brain and spinal cord) is
surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid. This is a
life threatening illness.
Why are they going and Who?
Atlantic Ocean World Record Holding rower, Tara Remington and her

event that gives amputee children the chance to participate in exciting
activities and learn new living skills. Together we can get Charlotte get
