I’m open-water swimming to fundraise for Greenpeace #BECAUSE....

GOAL: Total of 50 K over Spring/Summer 2021

I’m swimming in open-water this spring/summer to raise awareness about and support for the work Greenpeace is doing to help with the climate crisis. I also genuinely think this organization puts good energy into the world.

I'm swimming because I'm passionate about discussion around complicated topics such as the socioeconomic impacts of a changing climate. 

I'm swimming because I love to move, and I feel serene in the many lakes of Ontario (until the weeds outgrow themselves).

I'm swimming because gathering for protests isn't a very good option now. I'm privileged to have the time to care and speak out about injustice, and the resources to take action.

I'm asking for you to donate a small amount. Let's say $10. And the next time we chat, we can talk about environmental advocacy, the dying fossil-fuel industry, gardening practices, and the players behind the climate movement.

Greenpeace is making a real difference by acting on climate change, working to save our oceans, forests and other vital ecosystems and encouraging sustainable consumption and production.

Swimming in Spring

Thursday 3rd Jun

My first swim of the season was on the May Long Weekend. I was in the water without a wetsuit. The water wasn't quite comfortable enough for my head to go underneath doing front crawl, so my neck felt a bit strained by the end of the swim- about a 450 meter length in Cranberry Lake!

MY next swim was with a wet suit in the deep, mineral-rich waters of Gould Lake. I took off from the dock and did two  laps to the shore and back. 400 meters.

The water was warm enough to do front crawl with my head IN THE WATER! I was pretty excited about this swim as it was my first time swimming comfortably in only my bathing suit this year! A meager 300 meters, with lake weed seemingly attacking my limbs!
