I still have an 'ice-bucket' style challenge to complete!
You may recall a few months back, I was nominated for the ice-bucket challenge. Given the incredible waste of water linked to this challenge, I had proposed running the Lausanne Half Marathon in 2hrs and then jumping into Lake Geneva afterwards.
Sadly, I missed the Lausanne Half Marathon and had to fly to South Africa instead to see my father who is struggling with cancer. I was feeling quite nervous about traveling alone to Johannesburg. So far so good and despite all the harsh realities of being here, I am happy to spend time with my dad, catch-up with old friends and get to know some of my family better.
Now back to the ice-bucket...I still have a challenge to complete!
On 14 December, Geneva is holding it's 76th Coupe de Noel. What is this?
A chilly, 120 metre swim in Lake Geneva where the water temperature can be as low as 2.5 degrees.
I propose attempting to swim the 120 metres as my ice-bucket challenge.
Do you like the sound of this? If yes, please share and encourage those around you to make a donation to my gofundme campaign.
Brrr...hopefully it will be less icy than a few years ago ;-)
