Emma swam the English channel to raise awareness of Endometriosis. Her swimming coach told her to always be ready for the call to swim. The channel conditions were not ready for her swim for 3 months. I took photos of her #waitingforthecall.
“Endometriosis is a condition that affects 1 in 10 women and it still takes to this day an average of 7.5 years to diagnose. 7.5 years! I’ve taken part in fundraising activities pretty much my entire adult life, so my events would now raise funds for Endometriosis UK.
Half a million women stopped swimming in last decade, we must reverse this trend! The benefits of exercise are well known and swimming is such a great way of keeping fit and keeping joints healthy. I am sad and angry that people stop swimming because of body image issues... if I can convince friends, colleagues or strangers to get back to the pool, I'll be a happy woman”
