The Next Challenge - Oceans 7 Challenge
In 2019 I fell in love with Ocean swimming when we completed the English Channel.
I am now continuing the quest to conquer the Seven Seas! More precisely, I am accelerating my goal of completing 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.
The journey so far…we have conquered 3 of the Oceans 7 swims. It has been amazing.
We have met so many incredible people. As well as visiting so many incredible parts of the world, we have raised over 2/3 million Australian dollars to help find a cure for cancer. To add, we have also worked hard building awareness around living and eating healthily. We have also been focused on simply encouraging people to proactively undertake health checks. There is no better cure than simple prevention.
Sarah, my wife is now two years into her battle 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. So…I swim to make a difference.
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!
2023 is turning out to be HUGE!
Cook Strait New Zealand is done! Wow! Mother Nature really did put on a show! Thank you so much New Zealand for making my homecoming so special. Memories that I will have for the rest of my days!
It’s off to the Catalina Channel. Catalina Channel is the body of water between Los Angeles and Catalina Island. Our tide is September 28, 2023. The difference with the Catalina swim...you go on your day! It isn't tide dependent!
So, buckle in! You’re not going to want to miss this chapter! 2023 is turning into a year of MASSIVE memories and emotions!
Thank you for all your support from all over the globe!
