Swimming the Shipwreck Coast series to raise funds against blood cancer

Today, more than 53 Australians will be told that they have blood cancer and tomorrow - another 53 families will be devastated by the same news.

I have created this page to raise vital funds to help provide the special care that is needed to get families through a blood cancer diagnosis as well as to help fund more game-changing research into this disease. 

The money I raise will help provide care for those in need right now — and it will back the brightest researchers to continue uncovering faster diagnoses and better treatments to save lives. 

So... to help raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation, I am going to swim the Shipwreck Coast Series, Victoria's original ocean swim series... 4 Ocean swims of 1km each, in Port Fairy, Warrnambool, Port Campbell, and Portland across the summer. The swim events are run each year by the Surf Life Saving Clubs at each location. 

Please show me your support by donating to my fundraising campaign!
