Tori Karg de Almeida is raising funds for CHOC

I am so excited to be swimming my first 8 mile (that's 12.8kms) and swimming to raise funds for CHOC - Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa

I am a passionate swimming teacher and love children. So helping children in need is very close to my heart.

I will be swimming all 8 events of the Midmar Mile (The biggest open water event in the world!), in Feb, and its happening right here in our hometown - Howick!

Every bit helps towards me reaching my fundraising goal, and hopefully exceeding it,  so please dig deep for this very worthy cause.

Thank you for supporting me and CHOC!

Earlier this year I was privileged enough to meet the record-breaking Ultra Extreme Open Water and Ice Swimming Champion. He really inspired me with his talk. The very next day I put my name down on the waiting list to swim 8 mile.
