I am taking part in the Bosphorus Cross Continental Race on 26th July. The annual event is organised by the Turkish Olympic Committee and see the world's busiest shipping lane closed as one thousand swimmers take to the waters. The race is approximately 6km and crosses from Europe to Asia with Istanbul as its backdrop. I am raising funds for The Muscle Help Foundation, a small charity who make some big differences to young lives. Everything that I raise goes towards the charity; my trip is completely self funded and any effluent water self inflicted! I hope you will be able to help me raise funds, and in turn help young people with Muscular Dystrophy.

experiences in the UK called Muscle Dreams for young people with the muscle wasting disease Muscular Dystrophy and allied
Muscular Dystrophy is the single biggest genetic killer of children in our world today. It robs sufferers of their mobility, their independence and for those with the most severe type, predominantly children, their lives. There is no known treatment.
