Last March Clare completed 100 lengths, which is 2.5Km, and thanks to many generous donations raised over £900 for Sports relief this April she is hoping to achieve the same in aid of Marie Curie.
Clare will undertake the swim on Saturday 18th April.
Update – Swim Successfully Completed!
The day came and Clare successfully completed 100 lengths of the pool, well done Clare and thanks to everyone who pledged money in sponsorship. So far Clare has raised £655, however if you’d still like to make a donation and support Marie Curie you can donate to Clare via her Swimathon page
Here are a few action shots!
Clare said of the challenge “I am challenging myself to 100 lengths after having part of my bowel removed in October 2014 due to my Crohns Disease. I managed 100 lengths last year for Sport Relief and I hope I can get back to fitness.
I’m raising funds for Marie Curie to help them to provide care to over 40,000 people living with terminal illnesses across the UK.”
Once again, if you would like to support Clare in her efforts to raise money for such a great cause you can do so via her Swimathon Page
