Gary Bruce Swims the English Channel!


Help him fundraise for Free The Children!

Just 6 months to go...

'My Everest' approaches and I am ramping up for the final assault! I am due to swim the English Channel in September 2013. 21.5 Miles.. in a straight line.. not including the two big tides that I will encounter.. Oooo and the possible jellyfish, some of the largest ships that I have ever seen, a sea temperature of hopefully 16-18C, possibly a few waves and a total of up to 30-35miles of actual swimming!

"What on earth am I doing??"

The challenge of a life time. More people have succeeded in summiting Mt Everest than completing an English Channel swim! Most fail in the very last mile to the French coast due to tidal conditions, fatigue and cold.

I am doing this swim because it has been an everlasting dream of mine. And to celebrate this I am going to ask you and all of your friends to help match my personal commitment of £6000 to date by raising money for one of the most important charities of our time: Free The Children.

Free The Children believe that young people have the power to change the world. And they are so right. Youth can break barriers that would otherwise prevent them from achieving their fullest potential.

Free The Children is a high impact and innovative charity. The program is designed to achieve tangible results with a lasting impact on the youth and thus our future. I believe that youth can be the greatest problem solvers. Let 'them', the children, make the world a better place..... Support me and donate now.

Thank you for your very kind donations.. help me beat my £6000 target!!

Best wishes
