What made you sign up for the Nivea 5X5 Challenge?
Life is so special were we sometimes forget how privileged we are. Having the opportunity to bring a smile to a child’s face is priceless. The Ladybird Foundation’s cause, does just that! I am proud to take part and contribute.
Have you ever attempted such a distance before?
Never had and never thought I would!! Aiming to swim 16km is a challenge in itself especially when you are no longer agile or fit as you once were 🙂 We are all working on shedding a few pounds and getting ‘match ready’ for D day :)….
What are your thoughts as you look forward to the challenge ahead?
The challenge is all about embracing ones physical and mental capabilities. I am looking at it as an opportunity to help a child and family have a unique and memorable experience to treasure for the rest of their lives whatever it may be. At the same time I am making new friends, teaching my children the value of life, commitment and believing in a just cause. The rest as much as it could be painful or a concern is superfluous when considering the ultimate objective of the challenge.
