Goree Challenge Story

NEW YORK (April 13, 2020) — With the pandemic of coronavirus across the oceans, Don Victor Mooney, a devout Catholic, is using his time to draft a story, with the hope it will encourage others to never give up.  

On a 4th try, after failing on three previous attempts to row across the Atlantic in memory of his brother who died of AIDS & to encourage HIV testing, Mooney set off from the Canary Islands on Feb. 19, 2014, and landed at the Brooklyn Bridge on November 28, 2015. He faced enormous challenges in the twelve years it took for him to live a dream.
