I'm taking on the Aspire Channel Swim 2016, swimming the distance of the Channel over 12 weeks to raise money for Aspire. Every eight hours someone is paralysed by a Spinal Cord Injury and Aspire provides the essential equipment, advice, housing and grants that spinal cord injured people need to live their lives independently. This is a big challenge, but the more I raise, the more of a difference I'll make, so please be generous!
Also on a personal note this for me is going to be a real challenge, but one that I want to tackle. I am competing this challenge on my own and I've worked it out to just under 1700 laps of the pool - think I've lost my mind!
I cant wait to get started and hope you can all give something, even if its just 50p as this is a charity that we never know when we might have to ask them for help.
