Story

Thanks for taking time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am attempting to swim 5x longer than I have ever swam in my life. I am doing this partly because I enjoy hurting myself, but more importantly it is to raise money for an invisible diseases that wrecks people's lives! 

Despite the fact that more than 520,000 people in the UK with Alzheimer's disease, it is getting only a fraction of combined government and charitable funding that cancer research attracts (£544m vs £90m).

I am having to dig deep to swim the 14K. In fact in preparation for this, I am swimming 2 miles, 5Km and 10Km events and only a month after the 14Km, will be swimming the Dart 10Km. So I will be killing myself :) 

That's why I am asking you all to donate as much as you can.

In support of this, the company I work for, Fusion Global Business Solutions, has very kindly offered to sponsor and donate in excess of £1,000. A bigly start!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

I am very grateful for all your suppo
