Just Keep Swimming
The money I raise will go to Counselling for Social Change - it will be used to give free counselling to people in need in the South West.
Raising money for
Counselling for Social Change
I have been facing mental health head on for over 12 years now, sometimes working to keep myself afloat and often providing free therapy to keep others afloat using my counselling training. I believe in bringing light into the darkness when it is needed most and counselling is a wonderful way to do that.
I joined the amazing @swimdemcrew in January when I was determined to use sport to keep a handle on my own mind, this group has kept my spirits up & together we have trained for this MASSIVE swim!!! Thanks to everyone :-)
I have always loved the water but when you are face down in the same pool for 3 hours at a time counting laps it really pushes your mind to its limits and makes you do things like sing underwater!
The training has pushed me harder than I've gone before in sport & getting to the end of this race will be the result of 6 months of determination.
River Dart 10k
The 10k swim is known as the swimmer's marathon and is an Olympic race. I will be swimming down the River Dart along with hundreds of others, we'll all be dressed like a seals in neoprene suits.
I'll be swimming with the fishes for about 4 hours, front crawl the whole way... think of me while you drink tea in bed on Sunday morning, I'll be face down in the river!
