Well, I finished my 10 kilometer marathon swim for charity yesterday and it took me 3 hours and 15 min to cross the beautiful Sea of Galilee. With the help of family, friends and generous strangers, we had raised over $3500 to date for Jesus Walked I Swam. It was a total and complete success and people are still donating! Thank you all for all the support. This swim was one of the most beautiful, rewarding and meaningful experiences of my life.
I want to thank my family for being by my side (literally) on this swim and performing the all neccessary physical safety and emotional support.
