Fund Thanks Swim Master

The Mullany Fund would like to thank supporter Catrin Jones for her fundraising efforts this year. Followers of the charity will know that Catrin has a liking for extreme outdoor swimming events.

This year Catrin ventured out of British waters and jetted off to New York  to do The Governors Island Swim – a 2 mile event in the Hudson river.  She also did a number of other swimming challenges including a repeat of the Great Welsh Swim  (3.8k sea swim) and the Great London Swim (1 mile).

Unlike an indoor swimming pool, a stretch of open water is a wild and uncontrolled environment, which adds markedly to the challenge.

“I’ve completely got the open swimming bug.  While swimming up and down a 25m pool can be boring outdoor swimming can be incredibly exciting and there’s often the added sense of battling with, and overcoming the elements.”

You can donate at Catrin’s Fundraising Page.
