Marcy Nears End of Second Leg on Attempted Triple English Channel Crossing to Fight Cancer -- September 5, 2004
ENGLISH CHANNEL, Atlantic Ocean September 4. MARCY MacDonald was doing well according to the captain of her support boat, Mike Oram, as she approached England at the end of the second part of her attempted triple crossing of this most famous swimming venue.
Scott Lautman reported Oram’s comments to SwimInfo as she continues her quest to cross the channel three consecutive times.
“Marcy is going well. At 1920 hours (GMT) we are about a mile from the English inshore traffic zone 2 nm to the east of the South Goodwin light ship.”
WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS?
The goal of their Triple Crossing is to raise funds for Swim Across the Sounds Cancer programs for families and kids with suffering from cancer. They have set a goal of $200,000 with anonymous donor pledging $100,000 who has in turn challenged Dave and Marcy to match that pledge.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
So they need your support in order to reach this goal. Please consider a generous donation so they can help others suffering from cancer.
Please contact Scott Lautman to see how you can help.
