Sponsor Peter Head in Swimathon, 26-28 April 2013 (click here)
As you may know, co-blogger Peter Head has a long sporting career behind him. He came in 42nd place in the Olympic racewalking in Beijing 2008, after somewhat unexpectedly having received a wild card from the International Olympic Committee to enter the competition.
Last year in connection with the London summer olympics 2012, his British colleague Steve Walton got the honor to run with the torch.
Apparently, the torch made a detour to Tyndale House, so that Pete could once again celebrate his own Olympic memories.
Apparently, Peter Head is still a very active man. Now he has taken up a new challenge and will participate in the 2013 Swimathon starting today! The swim race is 5 km and Pete is aiming at under 1:30.00 (unless the pool is busy).
The Swimathon is actually the world's biggest fundraising swim, and we want to encourage all our readers to sponsor Peter Head and help him raise money for a very good purpose. I have already made my donation! Good luck Pete!
