Record Attempt in preparation for marathon swim

The Hill family 24 Swim challenge was held at Erina Fair on July 9 and 10 in support of the Cancer Council NSW.

Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein attended the Swim Challenge and acknowledged the efforts of all involved in organising the swim and those who attended the fundraiser, which is yet to be confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records. The swim began at 7am on Wednesday, July 9, and finished up at 7pm the following day. Tania, Luke and Paul Hill undertook the challenge in preparation for their attempt to swim the English Channel and to raise funds for the Cancer Council NSW.

“In August, Tania, Luke and Paul Hill will become the first three siblings to swim the English Channel in the one year,” said Mr Holstein. “I note that more people have climbed Mt Everest than have swum the English Channel. “On behalf of the Central Coast community, I wish them every success in their impending swim of the English Channel and congratulate them for their efforts in raising funds for the Cancer Council in NSW. “I encourage those seeking to support the family to go to their website,” Mr Holstein said.
