Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes six years ago and have since developed some complications. So when I was contacted by Diabetes UK to do this sponsored swim, I thought it was a great opportunity to not only raise some money for a very worthwhile charity, but also improve my own fitness and stamina.
I already swim weekly with friends and always feel invigorated when I leave the pool. The challenge set by Diabetes UK is to swim the equivalent of the English Channel which is 22 miles, in my local pool. The challenge starts on Monday Feb 22 2016 and runs until 22 May. However, I have set my own personal goal which is to complete the 22 miles in one month instead of three..!
It will mean some very early mornings (getting up at 5:30am) so please help me complete my challenge and raise much needed funds for this very worthwhile charity by donating generously.
