My Progress



I've swum

31.50 km

My Goal

31 km

This March, I’m challenging myself to swim to save lives.

After much deliberation and questioning about if I could make the commitment both physically and more importantly mentally, I have decided to push ahead and do the laps 4 Life again this year raising crucial funds for .

Through the ups and downs of the last 12 months from losing my little mate Gus and what life has thrown us in general, I haven’t had to use their service’s but it is comforting to know someone is there if I ever do…. So let’s get this done again. I’m going to do a kilometer a day for the month of March.

The support last year was phenomenal and when times were tough it was the publics generosity that pushed me through those barriers.
