So many of my family have been devastated by cancer I have set a personal goal of swimming the full 5.8km length of the cold Loch Lubnaig on Sunday 7th August 2016.
Almost everyone in my mother’s family has been touched by cancer. Making this remark reminded my dad that both his parents died of cancer – and his side of the family have seen more than is fair.
All types, all ages – it has not discriminated. I want to help fund the research to give the next generation a fighting chance!
I’ve always enjoyed swimming and got into open water swimming seriously this year – starting in May in water of only 9C! Thankfully the water has got a little warmer and with training I have recently managed 4k so far – it’s going to be a big challenge to complete the full length of the loch at 5.8km!
