Chris Whiteside in Swimathon 2009
I will be taking part in Swimathon 2009 next week to raise money for charity, particularly Marie Curie Cancer care.
I hope to swim 5,000 metres e.g. 200 lengths of a 25 metre pool. When I was younger, fitter, and had more time for training I managed to get my time for the 5,000 metres down to an hour and twenty minutes, but this year I will be delighted to finish and doubly delighted if I can get my time within an hour and 45 minutes

Swimathon have arranged for people to be able to sponsor swimmers and pay online. My sponsorship page is here.
and I would be most grateful to anyone who is kind enough to sponsor me and support this worthy cause.
