Round Rotto swimmers hoping to raise $28,000
CEINWEN Roberts (34), Wayne Morris (44) and Geoff Wilson (50) want to raise $28,000 for the Kirkbride Melanoma Centre after swimming 28km around Rottnest Island recently.
It is the first time the circum- navigation has been done.
Mrs Roberts, of Swanbourne, said Scott Kirkbride, who died from melanoma at age 27, was a family friend. “We swam to raise awareness and money for the Scott Kirkbride Melanoma Cen- tre,” she said. “We covered 28km in eight hours and 15 minutes.”
Three boats and six paddlers, including Mrs Roberts’ husband Andy Roberts, supported the trio.
