Fundraiser – Karena Swims for True Colours

8th April 2018

Karena is a mum of 3 gorgeous children, 10, 8 & 4.

Here is her story :

After Mr 4 was born we were introduced to the medical world. Dominic spent over half his first year in and out of hospital. When Dom was 2 years old we moved to Hamilton, and we were told about True Colours Children’s Health Trust, which started a new journey of encouragement and support.

True Colours have been there for appointments, given me a shoulder to cry on and supported me in a huge way.

Karena has decided to take part in the 5 Bridges Swim in Hamilton on the 8th April.  This 7.1km swim will be a big challenge for Karena who up to a few months ago could hardly swim a few hundred metres.  But through a lot of training and determination she will be taking on this challenge with the aim of raising money for True Colours.

This fundraiser is a way to show my appreciation for an amazing organisation and say thank you as we move on to our next phase. Please help me give back to True Colours so they can continue supporting Mums like myself through sponsoring my 5 bridges swim.

The 5 Bridge Swim is an annual event held where entrants must swim 7.1 kms under 5 central Hamilton bridges. The swim takes place on Sunday April 8th 2018.

The money raised will help to support more Mums like Karena, who have a child with a serious health condition.
