Team Facing It will represent South Africa and will raise funds while they row across the Atlantic for the Smile Foundation, of which Wayne states “Our boat, Tide, will reflect branding of the Smile foundation in strong support for their altruistic mission of improving the smiles and lives of children with facial defects in South Africa. Smiles work has definitely become part of our lives and team Facing It 2016”. Another charity team Facing It is raising funds for is the Friends of the Care Project, who care for disabled children in Antigua and Barbuda.
