UPDATE: On 25 July 2017, at 16 years and 10 days, I became the youngest Australian male to swim the English Channel. I did it in 9 hours and 45 minutes. Set out below is my story and request for help in my fundraising for RU OK?
When I started this campaign, I was a bit younger.... and hoped to raise $20,000. Now, having trained very hard for a long time, I have achieved my ambition and have also already raised $30,000.
Please help me smash this out of the park. Lets go for $40,000.
MY REQUEST BEFORE THE SWIM:
I am 15 years old, from Bondi and I am determined to make history by being the youngest Australian male to complete the English Channel crossing. Swimming makes me happy and I want other teenagers to understand there are lots of ways to feel happy. I am raising money for RUOK, an organisation whose sole purpose it is to encourage people to talk about how they feel.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about RUOK?, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
