Story

Hoffy's Open Water Swims to date:-

Hello, my name is Paul Hopfensperger (Hoffy) and on July 10, 2007 I became only the 873rd person in history to swim the English Channel (see www.HoffysChannelSwim.org.uk). The reason for doing this was to attempt to raise a total of £50,000 for two very important charities, £35,000 for CLIC Sargent, the UK's largest children's cancer charity and £15,000 for St. Nicholas' Hospice in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, my home town.

Having completed the channel from England to France, and raised over £10,000 in doing so, I continued the fundraising by doing 3 more swims in 2008 as follows:-

- July 2008 13, 2008 - Swimming a 19KM river Swim in Sabac, Serbia which was a FINA World Cup Open Water Grand Prix event.

- September 11-12, 2008 - Completing a second English Channel Swim in 13 Hrs. 03 minutes to become only the 84th person in history to swim the English Channel more than once.

- October 18, 2008 - Swimming a 15KM river Swim in The Sumidero Canyon, Mexico which was also a FINA World Cup Open Water Grand Prix event.  

For 2010 I will be attempting to become only the 19th person in history to complete a two way English Channel swim (England to France to England). You can catch up with all the latest news and full reports from all my swims on my blogsite at www.HoffySwims.com.

Please dig deep and sponsor me online. Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support CLIC Sargent.
