Row, row, row your boat across the Atlantic

Fredricka Whitfield introduced us to 25 year-old Paul Ridley back in April.  He became the youngest American EVER to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean.  He did it in memory of his mother who died of cancer in 2001 and to raise money for cancer research. 

We first interview him shortly after he began his 3000 journey,  then again in March and just hours after he reached shore.

After our interviews, this summary story was put together for Impact Your World.

You can follow Fredricka every weekend on CNN!
