Thank you to my crew, pilot and everyone's support!

In August  2017, I swam the length of Loch Ness, in western Scotland.  The loch is 22 miles long and has an average water temperature of 54°F/12°C. I will swim in just a suit, cap and googles.

What is motivated me?

Kids in Afghanistan. They are born into one of the poorest countries of the world. And their hopes are grim unless they can rise above the despair by getting an education.

My goal is to raise $100,000 with the help of donors like you. 100% of all donations go directly to Trust in Education.


Why Loch Ness

Swimming Loch Ness will be my most difficult swim to date.
