Jesus Walked I Swam - Mission Complete with Photos and Video

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. 

  To learn more about this charity and how to donate, 

please visit JESUS WALKED I SWAM

Please check out my photos 

plus a great video of the marathon swim from finsih line.


The actual launch site located in the village of Kefar Nachum or Capernaum (The town is first mentioned in the New Testament, where it figures prominently in the Gospel narratives as the place where Jesus lived during much of his ministry in the Galilee) on the Northwest shore of The Sea of Galilee or the Kinneret

Hey buddy, am very proud of you!
Congratulations on a job well done!
Very much enjoyed your movie, and watching you make the trek via home video... After seeing your tireless determination swimming non-stop laps at the Rec Center, there was no doubt in my mind you'd finish the job! You should be very proud. Best, Michael
