The Next Challenge - Oceans 7 Challenge
Having conquered the English Channel in 2019, I decided why stop there!
It has been an incredibly tough 24 months for many people around the world. Sadly, in the midst of this world-derailing pandemic, my wife was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-small cell lung cancer. This means cancer presented in her lungs, parts of her skeleton, thyroid and brain. Since that day in September 2020, life in the Eade household has been very different.
There is so so much more work to do to not only raise money to continue to accelerate the fight against the disease, but equally importantly, to raise AWARENESS!
So, now that there is light at the end of this pandemic tunnel…it’s back to work – “one down, six more to go!” I am now continuing on the quest to conquer the Seven Seas! More precisely, I’m taking up the Oceans 7 Challenge.
It's a marathon swimming challenge consisting of seven open water channel swims. It includes the English Channel, the Molokai Channel, the Catalina Channel, the North Channel, the Tsugaru Strait, the Strait of Gibraltar and the Cook Strait.
We had planned to attempt a triple crossing of the English Channel, but as many of you know…COVID put that on ice!
So, we’re headed to Northern Ireland. We are going to swim the notorious Northern Channel, from Ireland to Scotland. The boat, the crew, the accommodation are all booked! The Neep tide is August 5-10 2022. Let's go!
This leg of the challenge is going to be tough, but with your belief and support, I will see it through!
Help us! Set your own fundraising goal today, and between April 1-10 set yourself a swimming goal and help us raise money for Tour De Cure and Lung Cancer Research.
