Nic's winter swim challenge
30 day winter swim challenge to support kiwi kids through serious illness or bereavement.Auckland
I am a cancer survivor, bereaved mum and also live with Parkinson's and a degenerative heart condition, cardiomyopathy.
Before my heart started to fail and my diagnosis of Parkinson's, I embarked on many sporting challenges to fundraise; marathons, ocean swims, adventure races...I enjoyed supporting others while challenging myself...it was good to feel alive.
Cardiomyopathy and Parkinson's changed that, and I thought, what can I do now...
Then I had a light-bulb moment. While I can't swim the way I used to, I can challenge myself in a new way and embrace physical challenges and push my capabilities. That's where the idea of winter swimming came from.
