Mile challenge for Roy’s cancer fund
I AM supporting a new charity swimming badge that is in aid of Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.
In order to complete the badge, participants must swim a mile over the course of a month either in one go or over multiple swims. Once the mile is completed, supporters will receive a T-shirt, certificate and swimming badge in recognition of their hard work.
The challenge is free to enter and any money raised from sponsorship will go to Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation to help fund vital lung cancer research and support people living with lung cancer.
As a swimmer, my lungs are obviously vital to my performance in the pool, which is just one of the reasons why I am supporting this campaign.
To take part in Swim a Mile in a Month and get your badge visit www.roycastle.org/swim.
The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation aims to beat the biggest cancer killer.
The charity was set up in 1990 and named after TV presenter and entertainer Roy Castle, after he was diagnosed with the disease. In the last months of his life raised £1million to fund research to beat lung cancer.
Today they continue his legacy by funding research to stop lung cancer being diagnosed too late to be cured, making life better for the thousands of people living with lung cancer and stopping children becoming smokers to prevent the next generation getting lung cancer.
