Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Four days to go until the 10k swim, and the reality of how far 10k is, is starting to dawn on me. I hope to achieve it in 3 hours, but have managed far fewer training sessions than planned... so who knows if I'll make it at all! None the less, the challenge of this is nothing compared to what our swimmers at Pimlico Puffins face and overcome every week.
I am fundraising for this wonderful small charity in Victoria, that helps disabled people to swim. Money will go towards the cost of running the bus - which brings our most disabled people to and from the pool, and our annual gala - where our swimmers have a chance to compete against other clubs, and hopefully win medals and trophies for their efforts.
Please support me in bringing in a few pounds for this very worthy cause.

A huge thank you to everyone that sponsored me. The money will go a really long way. I am very grateful. The event was incredible. Heavy rain had compromised the water quality, but I was one of the lucky few to escape a dodgy tummy. A gentle upstream start in the sunshine was followed by a more serious second half, with rain, some quite big waves and swimming alongside ferries in the estuary. I completed it in 2.24, only 2 minutes behind "the boys". A fantastic experience, and well worth the scabby neck wetsuit injuries.
