Welcome to the fight!

Back in 2009, i made a pledge to try and swim the channel in aid of neurological wellbeing, this site is a diary of my attempt to complete that pledge....

Most challenges have a story and mine is no different, back in 2006 my mother, Pat Capp was diagnosed with relapsing, remitting Transverse Myelitis. Having spent over 30 years of her career teaching people (including me and my 2 siblings) to swim, i thought that this would be my way of giving something back, but also to try and raise some money to try and fight this currently unstoppable disease.
