I'm going to be Amaze-ing!
Once again I am endeavoring to test my athletic limits as I have signed up to be part of the Monash Team to swim in the first Marathon swim of this kind in Australia! This is a fundraising event for Autism Victoria (Amaze).
The 42 km swim crosses Port Phillip Bay from Point Lonsdale to Brighton, and takes place over 2 days, 10-11 March. I will be doing this as part the Monash Corporate relay team of 10 swimmers. The ABC will be making a documentary about it, so I could be famous!!
I am not a super-fish; I am an average swimmer and I really didn't like the swimming carnival at school. This is a BIG challenge for me. I am very excited about it and to be able to do this for all those people who can't.
I'm also looking forward to achieving something I have never done before.
We have a fund raising page
If you can spare a few dollars, please sponsor me (and the Monash Team) via this website. Any support will be greatly appreciated, and will spur me on to swim as hard as I can!
I am a late entrant so am way behind in the fundraising stakes, but hope I can make a late charge and still make a difference for Amaze.
