Zara and Emma’s 3 Million cm Swim – follow us on social media

Why – As many know, Zara and unfortunately, many others in similar situations have experienced having to learn to walk again hence the long distance walking challenges in the past. However, not many people think about all of the other skills that are lost after a brain injury including how to float let alone swim in water. It didn’t cross Zara or Ian’s mind especially being qualified lifeguards and Scuba Diving instructors that this would be a problem, but a trip to the local pool in late 2017 soon proved … interesting!

With the help of Emma, one of Zara’s swimming instructors, Zara managed to re-learn to snorkel in time for a holiday back in November 2019. Swimming takes an awful lot of coordination especially when tackling turbulent water, different sounds and basically a completely different environment.

The closure of swimming pools in 2020 meant that these skills got a bit rusty and Zara needed to learn how to breath whilst swimming without a snorkel. So far She has managed 1/2 a mile in an hour.

Emma hasn’t managed to get in the water to swim herself for a number of years so, the pair are hoping this epic challenge will encourage each other to keep going and improve well-being whilst fundraising for a cause close to their hearts.
