Sue Martyn passed away leaving behind a loving husband and three amazing children. I am taking on this challenge in the hope of raising awareness and fundraising for some great charities!
'York inspirational Kids' is an amazing charity that supports parents of children with disabilities and additional needs. The charity played a big part in Sue's life and continues to support her amazing children. Funds raised through your support will be going towards this great community charity, to ensure the continued support of her husband and children in the future.
The remainder of funds raised by your kind generosity will also be going towards the Alzheimer's Society, and Cancer Research, charities also very close to our families heart.
The Challenge : The world's first Swimming Marathon
The first ever Swimming Marathon event takes place Saturday 11th November 2017 at the London Aquatics Centre, in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. A Marathon Swim will test me to the limit. I've started an intensive training regime in the hope I can complete this epic challenge. I hope to achieve a sporting feat of a lifetime by successfully completing the ultimate swimming challenge - a marathon swim!
This is the ultimate challenge for me and I am counting on your support and encouragement to complete this challenge and raise funds for the amazing charities!
