This challenge involves swimming a total of 22 miles (35.4km) over a period of 12 weeks between 8th September and 1st December 2014, in my local swimming pool. As you can see from the picture below, I've even been sent a beautiful pink swimming hat to use as I do!
The event seeks to raise money to enable the valuable work that Aspire does, supporting individuals who have suffered a spinal cord injury, to continue.
In my first week, I have already swum 246 lengths (6.15km - 3km of which I swam all in one go before going to work that day!). I'm looking forward to the rest of the challenge - and, in particular, to challenging myself to increase the distance I swim during each session!
If you would like to sponsor me as I take on this challenge, I would be both thrilled and incredibly grateful. Simply click on the button below and you'll be taken directly to my Just Giving page.
