Samantha's Swahili Channel swim for charity

Samantha's Swahili Channel swim for charity

Personal message

Tammy and I are joining a fund raising relay swim, organised by the 'Mad Swimmers' of South Africa. We are swimming in memory of Richard, Tammy's husband and Will and Georgie's Dad, who died of cancer this February.

One of my lasting memories of Richard, was of him trying to round up his kids from the surf of the Swahili Channel, which it is now our goal to cross. 

The Swahili Channel swim will happen on the 10th of October. We will swim the 35km in relay sessions. 

Your  contribution will go to the children's cancer hospital in Dar, giving the children here a better last few months of life.

Please help us raise funds, thank you.
