English Channel Swim

I'm Chris and I'll be swimming the English Channel solo in August 2017 for Dreams Come True.

It's easy to choose a big charity with a huge marketing budget, however I'd rather know exactly where the money is going and directly who will benefit from this challenge. 

I feel very fortunate to be somebody who's had many opportunities in life to travel, open a business and study abroad and not a lot of people have this. 



Dreams Come True is a small UK charity helping children with life limiting conditions achieve their dreams. This small charity has made a really big impact on me, enabling and empowering children with the power of a dream. Having a dream is so much more than a single wish, it provides us with positivity and the stength to keep moving forward no matter what the situation is.

Because of the nature of the beast, I want to raise a massive £25,000.



My window to swim accross the busiest shipping lane in the world is between 14th-20th August 2017 and I'm the 4th person to swim out of 4 so realistically I should be going off between 17th-20th. If the weather isnt on my side and i'm unable to swim my date will be moved back to the next available neap tide. 

Oh and I'm not allowed to wear a wetsuit because apparently that's cheating, instead I'll be getting fat to help insulate me along the way!

I really appreciate the support from everyone, it means a lot to have you join me on this journey. If you'd like to make a donation, big or small, just click on the link below.
