Cam swims for cancer research

“My name is Cam and I’m an avid sportsperson. I have been involved in Surf Lifesaving for over 50 years. 

I lived in the UK for many years and always wanted to swim the English Channel. There were very limited opportunities to do so and it just never happened. When I was asked if I would like to attempt the same sort of distance swimming the length of Sydney’s Northern Beaches I jumped at the chance. If I was going to put myself through that pain it seemed people might be inclined to stump up a few dollars to help me raise money for ACRF.

At the end of the race, I was very happy to have completed a personal goal and raised some money. Considering this was done between bush fires, drought, flood and COVID-19 it was incredible that so many people supported me.

Cancer kills over 10 million people worldwide annually – no better reason to help fund research. Everyone knows someone affected by cancer and finding a cure would be unbelievable.”
