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.
If you would like to support this very worthy cause and spur on this brave pair of swimmers then please dig deep and donate on the Everyday Hero webpage here.
Here at Swim Smooth we wish Jackie and Nat all the best for this extremely tough 20km crossing in February. Your commitment is truly inspirational to us.
