Kieran and Claire Gillespie is raising funds for Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation

I am so excited to have been accepted to swim my first 8 Mile in 2018 in support of the Princess Charlene Foundation/Swimmers Trust Fund. I am a total water baby and love swimming, surfing, paddling and diving. I have completed 13 Midmar miles, and to swim the 8 Mile for charity has always been a goal of mine.

Swimming, and in particular being able to swim, is something that I have always taken for granted having grown up on the KZN South coast, but through work and sport involvement over the last few years I have come to be very aware of how few people in South Africa are comfortable in and around water. I look forward to raising funds for the Princess Charlene Foundation/Swimmers Trust Fund which focuses on "Learn to swim" programmes, "Water Safety" and "Sport in Education", all of which are very close to my heart as an educator in South Africa.

Help me make make a difference, because "Team work, makes the dream work"
