I live in London and am an Associate Solicitor in the Wealth Planning Department of Rooks Rider Solicitors LLP, an International Boutique Firm based in Clerkenwell.
As you will see the swim is to raise awareness and support research into Motor Neurone Disease. Specifically the money raised will go towards Project MinE, an international genetic research project supporting the fight against MND.
On Friday 22 September I will be joining hundreds of swimmers to race 500 M on a course set up in the Royal Victoria Docks in aid of Project MinE. This is the equivalent of 20 lengths in a 25 metre pool. It is a long while since I did any racing (particularly with so many others! ) so please support me in this event and donate if you can or join me later for a drink afterwards from about 7 pm.
