Hi, my name is Andrea Chelkowski.
I am aiming to swim 15km from Dodges Ferry to Lauderdale Canal to raise funds for Southern Beaches Coastcare. Coastcare educates the community about their local coastal environment and coordinates programs such as; bone seed & other weed eradication, tree planting, erosion control and monitoring of birds and endangered frogs.
I have lived in Frederick Henry Bay for most of my life enjoying the beaches and this marathon swim is my opportunity to raise awareness for our beautiful marine environment.
Please assist me to help Coastcare by using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Coastcare, 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!
Please show your support by coming to send me off at Park Beach Carpark at 0700 on the 1st of March. Or meeting me at Lauderdale Canal between 1 and 3pm on my arrival. Hope to see you there!
