Swim For Sarah

Every now and again on Feel For The Water we like to feature something inspirational from the swimming community around the world. Swim Smooth are proud to support two 'normal' swimmers Jackie Gardiner and Natalia Vollrath who are taking on the extraordinary 20km Rottnest Channel Swim on February 20th. They are raising money in memory of their friend and colleague Sarah Mitchell who sadly died after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer in 2008.

Sarah was the director of the Newborn Emergency Transport Service of Western Australia and showed unbelievable strength and dedication to her job, running a service of flying doctors to tend to newborn children throughout remote areas of Western Australia. She was much loved and respected within the service and is sorely missed. You can find out a little more about Sarah's life on her tribute website: www.sarahmitchell.com.au

Jackie and Nat are hoping to raise $5000 for Solaris Cancer Care, contributing to the development of the "Sarah Mitchell Solaris Suite" in Perth, Western Australia. SolarisCare aims to improve the quality of life of cancer patients by giving them the support they require to cope with the emotional and physical side effects of cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
