Hut­ter plan­ning 277km char­ity row

Central Otago Mirror - - CLASSIFIEDS - MAR­JORIE COOK Con­tact: Sup­port Hut­ter: Give money:

Although Wanaka rower Jaime Hut­ter, 42, usu­ally looks for his sport­ing re­sults at the bot­tom of the page, he has al­ways taken heart from his for­mer univer­sity row­ing team’s world record for a mil­lion me­tre row.

Then, this year, the 19 year record was smashed.

That added fuel to a slow burn­ing flame of an idea.

‘‘I didn’t have a record any more and this 24 hour record popped up on my radar. I think it’s within reach, and we can use it for good,’’ Hut­ter said.

So, on De­cem­ber 3 and 4, Hut­ter will sit on an in­door row­ing ma­chine for 24 hours and at­tempt to row the driv­ing dis­tance to Dunedin (277 km) to raise funds for Wanaka St John, LandSAR Wanaka and Wanaka Coast­guard.

Hut­ter is at­tempt­ing the world record for the 40-49 year old men’s lightweight cat­e­gory (75kg or less). He cur­rently weighs about 76kg.

De­cem­ber 3-4, 2016 at the Lake Wanaka Cen­tre.

Go to Hut­ter’s Givealit­tle page. 100 per cent of do­na­tions go to Wanaka LandSAR, St John and Coast­guard. He’s match­ing do­na­tions too.
