Welcome to FreedomSwim

FreedomSwim is a place to share stories about open water swimming and health.

The Challenges

On February 25th, 2019,  I successfully completed my first swim from Robben Island to the mainland in Cape Town, South Africa.  This was a meaningful milestone in my life.  As a result of the generous donations of many friends and supporters, I raised over $4,000 for the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) to find a cure for Psoriatic Arthritis and Psoriasis.

My new challenge for 2020 is to swim the approximately 13 miles (21 kilometers)  from my hometown, Cardiff-by-the- seas (Swami’s Beach), to La Jolla Cove. My goal is to raise money and awareness for Prevent Drowning Foundation of San Diego and NPF.  Prevent Drowning Foundation’s mission is to save lives by funding swim lessons for underserved youth and proving aquatic safe education for all.
