Ultracoin Sponsoring Elsa Hammond in the Great Pacific Race 2014

BitcoinWoman Magazine and Ultracoin have announced that they are partnering to sponsor Elsa Hammond in the Great Pacific Race 2014.

On June 7, 2014, Elsa Hammond will be competing in a 2,400 mile canoe race across the Pacific Ocean, from California to Hawaii. The Great Pacific Race is the first rowing race on the Pacific, with teams of 1, 2 and 4 rowers competing against each other on the worlds largest ocean.

Ms. Hammond will be traveling solo in a boat with no sails or engines, moved only by her muscles pulling the oars, in a journey expected to take up to three months.

Ms. Hammond has dedicated her race to two causes - the Plastic Oceans Foundation, a charity that works to raise awareness of plastic pollution in our oceans; and the GREAT Initiative, a charity promoting gender equality.

Ultracoin, a crypto-currency similar to Bitcoin, will be sponsoring Elsa in her journey with donations and publicity.

The founder of Ultracoin commented on the sponsorship:

“Team UTC and our community are thrilled to be able to support Ms. Hammond in her attempt to complete this amazing voyage and we are amazed by her drive and perseverance. Our community will also donate a substantial amount of UTC after completion to show our support in this incredible endeavor

DCGirl, lead application developer for Ultracoin and a writer for BitcoinWoman Magazine added:

“We were awestruck when we read of Elsa Hammond’s race. She is taking something that most of us would find impossible and providing inspiration to women everywhere. I join with my team and the entire Ultracoin community in supporting Elsa in her quest.

An Ultracoin wallet will be placed on Elsa Hammonds website where you can also read her inspiring story.

And donate with Bitcoin here.

The Coin Telegraph team wishes the best of luck to Elsa in the Great Pacific Race 2014!
