As with any large undertaking – these types of swims require an enormous amount of preparation before they can be attempted successfully.
While my main focus is to raise money to help FARA, I also need to pay the other, lesser fees (you know like registration, transportation, room and board, etc. etc…. the minor details).
In addition to those little pieces, I also need swimsuits, goggles, wetsuits, caps, and other equipment I use to train and race in.
These things add up quickly, and while I wish I could send all the money right on down to FARA headquarters, I need to pay the bills (so to speak) in order to keep this great thing going . . .
So, with the nitty gritty out of the way, I would like to take a moment to thank the generous sponsors that have helped to finance and fuel my passions – OWS and FARA.
*If you or someone you know is interested in helping with Kristin’s personal finances towards funding one of her OWS. Please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will gladly give you anymore information about where the money will help.
