Day 7 - 5km swim for OneGirl completed!

Day 7 - I completed my swimathon for OneGirl this morning. And it was fantastic to be greeted by Christine McKenna, Neil Smith and Trish Smith when I reached the shoreline. Many thanks to all my sponsors. It was money well spent guys.  I well and truly beat my donation target of $1000. Cheers, Dave. 

Day 6 - 4.2km so far

Day 6 had perfect conditions for a swimathon except for the brewing storm clouds. Donations are still trickling in and I have only 800m to go! Thanks goes to my many generous sponsors. 

Day 5 - 3.5km so far

Perfect conditions for open water swimming this morning. It was like a lake. Not sure about tomorrow’s forecast though. 🌧

Day 4 - another 700m

It’s day 4 of my swimathon for OneGirl and I’ve doubled my initial donation target of $1000!  Thanks to all my generous supporters. I’ve swam 2800m so far and I’ve got another 2200m to reach my goal of 5km. So far so good. 

Day 3 - 700m

Day 3 went well this morning with another 700m added towards my goal of 5000m. Caught up with some good mates afterwards for a coffee at the beach kiosk. Only 2900m to go! 

Day 2 - another 700m

Day 2 and I’ve clocked up a total of 1.4km. Only 3.6km to go!  Conditions were pretty good at 10am although the water temp is a little cold. No jellies which was good. And the donations are doing very nicely. Thanks to all my sponsors. 

700m today - 4300m to go

Bit chilly this morning but I managed to dodge the rain. A few wetsuit boys at the beach but otherwise pretty quiet. I also managed to dodge a large jellyfish. 

Day One

Happy IWD2021.  It’s day one of my quest to swim 5km for OneGirl. All money goes to help education programs for young girls in two African countries Sierra Leone and Uganda. I’m off to Williamstown Beach in a couple of hours to kick off the swimathon. Pics and updates to follow. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
