Check out this video of Patrick aka the Bionic Boy (click on the following link – The Bionic Boy) who will be joining us on the boat for our swim, it really is impressive.
Patrick contracted meningitis when he was just 9 months old but his life was saved with the help of COSMIC the charity I am raising money for. It really is amazing what technology can do these days to help make peoples life’s easier after the loss of limbs. This is the reason I do the challenges I do to help people like Patrick, without charities such as COSMIC existing would have been much harder for him and his family. I am really pleased that he is going to be part of our journey it makes it seem all the more worth it and will give us all the drive and determination to ensure we succeed.
Patrick will be updating the COSMIC Facebook and twitter account throughout our swim so do say hi to him when you read the updates so he knows you are listening.
