Thanks again to those who have already sponsored me to take part in Swimathon 2012 to raise money for Cancer care.
If anyone wants to try to top the gentleman who posted that if I swim the 5,000 metres in Whitehaven harbour he will multiply the amount of sponsorhip by ten, do go ahead!
This will be the nineteenth consecutive year I have taken part. I plan to swim 5,000 metres at Copeland pool this Sunday (29th April). My son and daughter are also planning to do the "Simply Swim" challenge this year.
The National Swimathon is 26 years old this year and is taking place this weekend (27th to 29th April 2012).
Since the Swimathon was launched in 1986, well over £35 million has been raised for a host of good causes, and over half a million swimmers have taken part.
Anyone who would like to sponsor me and support Marie Curie cancer care can do so at the swimathon website here.
