Congratulations to Robert Farrow who swam the English Channel today (02.09.14) to raise awareness of dyspraxia and funds for the Dyspraxia Foundation! Robert completed his marathon swim in just 12 hours and 57mins – what an achievement !!!
Why did Robert chose to support the Dyspraxia Foundation? “Because this condition personally affects me. I understand what it feels like to be a small child and not be picked for the football team. To have poor balls skills, handwriting and find many activities hard, not for want of trying!
As an adult my luck has changed. I’ve really found my feet in the sport of open water swimming and want to achieve at the highest level. I suppose I do have a point to prove, that point being that everyone has something they can excel at with the right attitude and hard work.”
We have been tracking his process throughout the day and It’s not too late to donate to Roberts page on Justgiving https://www.justgiving.com/RFarrowSoloChannelSwim/
