Sir Richard Branson and Ronan keatin swim the Irish Sea
This September, Sir Richard Branson and Ronan keating are captaining a relay team to swim the Irish Sea and raise £1million for Cancer Research UK.
The newest member of The Swim team is our very own Jason Bradbury and this is what he had to say about the challenge: "I've taken part in loads of wacky and wild adventures over the years, and The Swim is certainly going right to the top of my list. I love a challenge and jumped at the chance to be part of the team. It's exciting and for a cause that is close to my heart, my eldest brother having survived skin cancer. Bring on the sharks, jellyfish, cold, night swimming... I will take it all on!"
The Swim is a celebrity-led challenge to cross the Irish Sea. Almost three times the length of the English Channel, this 56-mile relay swim will be a gruelling 30-40 hour mission from Holyhead to Dublin. Our goal is to raise £1million for Cancer Research UK's life-saving work through donations from the public and through swimmers raising sponsorship.
But the waters of the Irish Sea are violent and treacherous, and it's not going to be easy for our team of 10 brave swimmers...
