Swim a Marathon

358% Raised

Active Fakenham's Richard Crook is planning to swim a marathon in November to support First Focus Fakenham and Active Fakenham. This will be a big challenge for him. Richard said, “I am, for the first time, doing a sponsored something. This is for a couple of reasons. First it’s for two good causes and second because I am going into hospital soonish for an operation (new hip) and I need to get a bit fitter, so this challenge will be an added incentive. It is 26 miles 385 yards (42.195 Km), or 1688 lengths of the 25m pool. I will be doing this over a month in November. Thanks for your support.” He will post regular updates on the Active Fakenham webpage, Facebook, and maybe Twitter. You can support Richard, First Focus and Active Fakenham by donating.
