Hi all ! In 2013 I swam 101 lengths and raised £334.40 for this great charity... In 2014 I ran 5k in Hillingdon on Sunday 8th of June in a pink neon wig, in memory of 2 people very special to me. And also my friend Martin who passed away recently.
All of us have known people who have suffered from cancer, some who are sadly no longer with us, and many who have beaten it or are beating it now thanks to the great research advances supported by this charity. So this is a great cause guys! Thanks all
I teach fun dance/exercise classes all around my local area - I recently started to teach at a Dementia care home, and I absolutely love these people. I have worked in the West End and on TV as a professional dancer, and also more recently all around the country as a Stand Up Comedian, but I can honestly say that the most rewarding work I have ever done is working with people with Alzheimer's and Dementia - To see them enjoy the music and movement and sing along to all the words of songs like Que Sera Sera by Doris Day, is not only heart warming, beautiful but totally humbling as well. They are always so grateful. So this is why I am swimming 'A memory Mile & a half (100 lengths) in hopefully under an hour.
I recently completed the channel swim of 22 miles, however this is a speed challenge not so much endurance this time - although the 6am swim training's often feel like an 'endurance' :-) xxx
Thanks for reading this
Luv Alice :-) xxx
