I’m not a great one for using my swims for fundraising. I’m gonna do the swim anyway, so it doesn’t always feel right to ask people to donate to something I enjoy.
This time is different though. I’m raising money for the MNDA through JustGiving. Here’s what I wrote there:
Someone very, very important to me lost someone very, very important to her to this shi**y disease, so I wanted to do something.
What I’m actually going to do is swim a channel relay (swimming from England to France as part of team) – twice.
The first is a four-person relay which will hopefully take place at the end of August. In it we will swim for an hour each and I expect to get 3 or 4 swims (so four hours of swimming).
The second is a two-person relay at the end of September. For this one we will swim for two hours at a time and again I expect to swim 4 times, however this will mean eight hours of swimming.
If you think that this is something that is worth a few pennies then please donate. Thank you.
