Times Newspaper article on Laura’s marathon swim for MND
The Times newspaper have run a lovely article in today, Wednesday January 20, 2021 paper: “Mollymook ocean swimmer Laura Wallace is set to take on a 27 kilometre swim in recognition of the 27-month life expectancy for someone diagnosed with motor neuron disease (MND). (Fairfax Press have also ran this same article in a number of their other South Coast newspapers)
Laura explained that this ocean swim will take me between eight and nine hours, however, it will only take you a few short minutes if you wish to contribute a donation to help us fight MND together. Laura’s swim will be from Palm Beach to Shelly Beach [South of Manly] and she is up for the challenge because she has set her sights on raining much-needed funds for MND.
Her gaol is $10 000 and so far has raised $6,486. Donations over $2 are tax-deductible and can be made direct, follow this link: FightMND on their secure website.”
She mentions her gratitude for the support she has received from local Mollymook Ocean swimmers. Recently on a 20 km / six hour training swim in the ocean off Mollymook she received lovely support from Lloyd, Sean, Ross, Greg, Kate, Grant, Simone, Chris and Sue, Kaye and Monica, and Garry and a number of others throughout the six hour swim.
The full article can be read on Page 9 of today’s local Times Newspaper. Laura is grateful for their support of her fund raiser!
