One of our top-performing swimmers, Ethan Billinge is currently taking time out from a very busy training schedule to overcome and defeat Leukaemia.  Ethan is not afraid of big challenges as his past performances in the pool have demonstrated.  This challenge is no different and although new, he has world-class coaches, a great family and a brilliant Swimming Club supporting him.

Teenage Cancer Trust - YPU Ward at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham is taking the lead for us with this challenge, which is clear the blood cancer and conquer Leukaemia.


However, we're reaching out for help by asking you to take our Lemon CoD Challenge (take a big bite of a lemon and eat it!).  

This type of Leukaemia is risking and taking lives of too many people, preventing
them reaching their potential and like Ethan doing amazing things.
