Between 22 February and 22 May, take on the swimming challenge of the year. Swim the equivalent of the English Channel in your local pool while getting sponsored for every length. You'll cover an incredible 22 miles at your own pace and in your own time. You will feel the swimming benefits, while developing healthy habits and fighting diabetes.
Diabetes UK is the charity leading the fight against the most devastating and fastest growing health crisis of our time, creating a world where diabetes can do no harm. Its a fight that involves all of us sharing knowledge and taking diabetes on together.
This disease has impacted on the lives of several of my friends. In particular I am undertaking this swim to raise money and awareness in the memory of a wonderful young man, Tommy Green aged 21yrs, who is no longer with us due to this disease. If you feel so inclined please make a donation.
