Charity 8 Challenge 2024

Gail Bristow is raising funds for Chad Le Clos Foundation

Next Sunday I swim my 50th Midmar Mile ! To make this year's swim extra special I am taking part in the 8 mile Charity Event .

Swimming has been such an important part of my life for so many years and I would like to help others have the opportunity that I have had to learn to swim in a safe environment and help to prevent the many unnecessary drownings that happen in our country . 

Chad Le Clos is one of our National heroes and much admired in the swimming world.  He has done so much to inspire and encourage our young swimmers . He deserves all our support .

So family and friends , Rands ,Pounds or Dollars,  will all help towards a really good cause . 

overall progress
