On Saturday 2 May, Ryan Armstrong is taking part in the Lake Argyle Swim in the Kimberley and raising money for Fighting Chance.
Hear from Ryan below:
The 2015 Lake Argyle Swim will be held on Saturday 2nd May 2015. The distance of the race is 20 kilometres. Myself (Ryan Armstrong – AKA Fish) and my WA mate Ryan Hopkinson (AKA – Hoppy) are doing it as a duo.
Situated 75 kilometres from the town of Kununurra, Western Australia, Lake Argyle (inland lake) is located 40 kilometres from the Northern Territory Border and covers 980 square kilometres at normal water levels (is about twenty-one times greater in size than Sydney Harbour for a bit of trivia).
Clean freshwater awaits us at a very pleasant 22-26 degrees water temperature – just got to work our way around a few freshwater crocs.
