If anyone wants to know why I am doing so much promo for Team Brophy at the moment, it is because I am not brave enough, dedicated enough or driven enough to spent 17 hours swimming the channel.
17 hours in dirty, freezing water. Water so cold it will make your tongue swell up. Water so rough you will almost paddle to exhaustion. Unaided for long hour after long hour. Pushing on beyond the pain, beyond where your body says stop. All driven but the memory of someone you loved so dear, someone that gives you the motivation. A desire to stop other people having to experience what you went through.
That is why I am supporting Ben, because he is doing something I simply could not contemplate achieved.
So please show your support and sponsor at www.justgiving.com/teambrophy.
Viva le Team Brophy
