I'm taking on the Aspire Channel Swim 2016, swimming the distance of the Channel over 12 weeks to raise money for Aspire.
I want to do this because my husband is paralysed from the neck down and Aspire have helped us to sort out some issues we had and because I need them to help us sort out technology for my husband to give him more independence.
I'm also doing it because I love swimming and because I need to get fitter and because it's time for me to give back to those who have given to us through our journey.
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!
