We fund research into type 1 diabetes to find a cure for type 1 diabetes


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I would love your support in my attempt to swim the distance of the English Channel. To do this, I will be swimming the equivalent of  21 miles in my local swimming pool. 

Starting on February 1st 2019, I will be aiming to complete this challenge by the end of the month (February 28th), which means I will be swimming just under 1 mile per day. 

As well as this being a massive personal challenge in regards to fitness, I think it is very important to raise awareness for the JDRF UK charity and what they do for Type 1 Diabetics. 

Having seen first-hand the daily effects of Type 1 Diabetes on someone very close to me, I would like to play my part in raising awareness for this condition and I need your help in doing so. 

Thank you.
