New creative support group for Barrow
Swimmer dives into frosty fundraising feat!
We love it when our supporters do something both off the wall and completely unique to raise money and awareness for CancerCare.
Graeme Chesters has ticked all these boxes with his 10x10x10 Challenge, a frosty feat which will see him spend at least 10 minutes swimming in water 10 degrees or colder every week between December and the end of February.
He began his aquatic odyssey in Windermere last week and he will be continuing in local lakes and the sea. Graeme’s brisk bathes will be undertaken without a wetsuit and each time he does it, he’ll donate £10 to us.
Graeme has chosen CancerCare as the recipient of his efforts after we helped support his wife Gwyn when she was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago. Their son Joel also attended our Re-Fresh Young People’s Support Group which helps youngsters affected by a cancer diagnosis or bereavement in their family.
Graeme is documenting his experiences on a special blog which you can read here
