Hi Guys,

If anyone lives in Queensland and can throw a little bit of spare cash my way for the swim4kids charity event, it would be much appreciated.

We're swimming an 89km relay from the Gold Coast to Brisbane to raise money for the Royal Children’s hospital (Brisbane).

My leg will take place sometime on Friday night in shark infested waters!

I think from a credit card Cali, but only if you really want to as it's a local hospital charity.

How'd this go?

Yep very good, I swam for about an hour or 1.5nm. I'm just waiting for them to upload some day 3 pics and I'll post them. I think we raised $50000 in all and I reached my target of $1000.

It was pretty choppy out in the bay and the cage was being towed behind 2 massive diesel engines, I think I know what Gulf War Syndrome feels like now, felt like crap for 3 days, cross between jet lag and the flu.

The last guys swam the last bit up the river with NO CAGE, nutso!! Lots of bull sharks in the Brisbane river.

Thanks again for the dontations, the moneys going towards building a new rehab pool at the kids hospital.

How'd this go?
