Round the Rock Swim for Autism

Given by 146 generous donors in 8 weeks

Dan Abel will be doing a charity ocean swim 34km around Rarotonga to raise funds for Autism Cook Islands.


In mid September Dan Abel bravely completed a solo ocean swim around Rarotonga in record time of 11 hours and 2 minutes. Dan is a professional ocean swimmer and has recently returned from successfully swimming the English Channel. His love for the Cook Islands and reaching out to kids with special needs has drawn him here to swim the 34km around Raro and while doing this raise funds for Autism Cook Islands.
