Swim a Mile.. or half a mile :)

Tomorrow all TYs are heading off to do the "Swim a Mile" in the National Aquatic Center. This is to raise money for Barrestown and Crumlins Children's Hospital for children that have cancer. Also is charity is in memory of Ian Daly who passed away in 2004. Ian loved to swim so his parents thought that it would be a great idea to have a swim in memory of him and this has happened every year and has been a great success. The reason it is a mile is because they said they didn't want to make the swim easy and have it as a challenge just like the challenge Ian faced.If you were to swim the mile you would be swimming 64 lengths of a 25 meter pool. Also you can split into teams and do it that way. Its always a great day out and I cant wait :)
