A Personal Message from Sunil Tanna: - Updated as of July 19th & September 8th
On Sunday September 4th (original planned date of July 17th had to be postponed because of mountaineous seas), I will be attempting an open-water sea-swim in the scarily cold waters of the English Channel, from Bournemouth to Boscombe Pier, a distance of about 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers). This is a very daunting challenge, but it’s for a really good cause - to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, which is a charity that fights heart and circulatory disease by funding research and education, as well as helping heart patients.
- The charity accepts donations not only from the UK, but all over the world, so please consider making a donation at http://original.justgiving.com/sunilswimming
- You can make a donation of as much or as little as you want - minimum £2 - remember every little helps
- You can make donations now, or at any time upto or include October 16th 2011.
Additionally if you have a blog, forum, Facebook page, etc., please consider mentioning this on your page, and suggesting to your readers that they make a donation too.
Your support is worthwhile, can make a real difference, and is very much appreciated.
Thankyou for your consideration.
Update September 8th: I completed the swim on 4th September in 44 minutes.
