About my fundraising

In order to swim the equivalent of one mile, a swimmer must complete 66 lengths of a 25-metre pool. In order to swim five miles, 330 lengths of the same pool are needed.

I know this, because it's precisely what I intend to do for the next twelve months.

My reasons are simple: for every mile I swim, I'll donate £5 to Alzheimer's Research UK, and for every month I complete this challenge, I'll update a blog at:

To keep me honest, I'm entering a "Race at Your Pace" challenge every month and submitting the training evidence to them, and being sent a shiny medal in the process.

If you'd like to support me, you can follow my progress here and on my blog.

P.S. When you make a donation, don't forget to check the Gift Aid box if you're a UK taxpayer as then your charity can claim an extra 25% from the government!
