On June 4, 2016, Pat Hines and Liz Dycus will start their historic row across the Pacific, the world’s largest body of water, as part of the Great Pacifc Ocean Race of 2016. http://greatpacificrace.com
No sails, no motor, just muscle power and a fierce determination to challenge the waves and themselves. And their goals are mighty – set a world record for becoming the first two-woman rowing team to cross the Pacific, and turn up the volume on the conversation about Women’s Heart Health.
For Pat and Liz, who are both over fifty, it will be a test of their fitness and will, providing inspiration for women everywhere to get moving, be healthy and push their own limits.
They are not leaving without assembling an amazing land team of a navigator specialist, Paul Cunningham, and a medical team comprised of Dr. John Molina, and Dr. Donald W. Plance.

“Rowing across the Pacific as a two-woman team is a unique opportunity for us to turn up the volume on this important life saving conversation,“ says Pat Hines, Captain of the Team.
“We are honored to support Team OceanHearts and especially excited that they are bringing the message of heart health on their epic journey,” said Laura Baker, Business Development Director for the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women campaign in Los Angeles. “We are grateful to Pat and Liz for their commitment to empower women to take positive steps for their health.”
For Team OceanHearts, the goal is to set a world record as the first two-woman rowing team to cross the Pacific and to bring attention to Women’s Heart Health, an issue that is close to Pat Hines’s heart, who lost her mother to heart disease at the early age of 60.
Go Red For Women is a passionate social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart and brain health by providing them with tools and resources to live longer, stronger, healthier lives.
WE’RE RACING FOR A WORLD RECORD!
