I'm doing the Coniston end to end swim 5.25 miles for IiME because I want to do a swim that really challenges me

What I'm doing...

Last year open water swimming was all new to me and I pushed myself and completed one mile events in Windermere, Loch Lomond and in the docks in London. This year I have entered a number of  one mile events but I wanted a bigger challenge. Something that pushed me further. I'm not a particularly sporty person and one mile events push me but entering a 5.25 mile event is a really big challenge for me and something I am going to have to work hard to achieve. As it is such a big challenge for me I wanted to raise money for charity at the same time.

Why I chose Invest in M.E as my charity...

During the last year I have met lots of lovely new people on Facebook and it has raised my awareness of M.E. Through Facebook friends, I heard the story of a courageous person who is mostly confined to bed and one room because of M.E.  She has set herself a challenge to do a sponsored walk and her aim is, with the help of a friend, to get to her garden gate. The courage and determination of such fantastic people has spurred me on and made me determined to swim and raise money for a charity that will help to raise awareness about M.E and fund research to help the many people that it affects.
