What a month!
The Training- With 7 weeks to go until the swim, I have just completed my biggest swim training week of 60km. On top of that, this weekend I was part of a swim camp where we swam 2 consecutive days…7 hours on day 1, 5 hours on day 2. Both days were at or around 16 degrees Celsius, (Perfect conditions). In addition, over the weekend I shared Jervis Bay with seals, dolphins, Port Jackson sharks and stingrays! Amazing!
Fundraising- I want to thank you all so so much. As many of you will have seen via social media, we have surpassed our $100k target…and we are just going to keep on going! I want to once again acknowledge and thank all of those you that donated. I also want to thank all of the hard work that my wife Sarah put into the entire campaign over the last 6 months. The events that we held included sports events ice block sales, a cocktail evening, and a charity auction. Amazing! Sarah and I are so humbled. All the money will go to our researcher. The more we raise to fight DIPG, the more she can do.
