Edward Tippett is raising funds for CHOC

8 Mile Challenge

I will be back at it again for the 4th time on the weekend of 13th-14th February 2021, swimming all 8 events for a total of nearly 13km of swimming at Midmar Mile.

I would like to continue helping those around me and will need your assistance - I am not just swimming 8 Miles for nothing but for a worthy cause very close to me known as CHOC (Childhood Cancer Foundation).

The challenge keeps on coming. . 

Due to 2020 being a strange year, I will also end it off by swimming my first Robben Island Crossing (7.5km from Island to Big Bay) - towards end of November. This swim will be a hectic one with all different emotions in one as it also speaks of my own personal journey to overcome the odds.

Help me keep hope alive for children with cancer by supporting me to raise much needed funds (target of between R5000 & R10 000) for this exceptional organisation. 

Thank you
