The Waikato Challenge
The Waikato Challenge is the attempt to swim 250 kilometers on the longest river of New Zealand: the Waikato river. Supported by a team of paddlers I will swim for 21 days from Atiamuri dam to the Tasman Sea.
The swim is dedicated to raising money for a children's home in North West Thailand who shelter burmese child refugees, but are in desperate need of our help.
