Transatlantic Rower Eyes Bermuda On Approach To NY

"I hope to bring Bermuda's important role in Black history to life" - Victor Mooney

New York City (I-Newswire) January 11, 2011 - After seven years of preparation, training and two unsuccessful attempts, Victor Mooney, (45) of Queens, New York is determined to complete his mission. During America's commemoration of Black History Month in February, the veteran rower and his 21' rowboat "Never Give Up" will depart from Cape Verde and row five-thousand miles to New York's Brooklyn Bridge. Mooney's mission is to bring action towards HIV/AIDS through voluntary testing, prevention advocacy and raising money for AIDS services.

"Bermuda has made great strides in the fight against AIDS by partnering with stakeholders. Only, collectively can we increase prevention and tear down the walls of stigma associated with this disease", said Mooney at his home.

Mooney will be rowing through the Middle Passage - one of the routes across the ocean by which slaves were transported. Mooney is mindful that countless numbers did not survive the trip and that today, large numbers of people in Africa and America are dying of AIDS and still others unaware of their HIV status. With African-American rower Victor Mooney's route, Bermuda will once again be on the minds and hearts of the African Diaspora.
