Shark Island Swim for Georgia
Sunday February 7, 2021 was a perfect sunny Sydney day, ideal conditions for team Sweet Georgia Brown’s Shark Island Swim fundraising event.
A group of over 15 participated in the 1km and the 2.3km swim in the beachside suburb of Cronulla, and many more cheered on from the sidelines- all on behalf of Georgia Brown, raising funds and awareness for paediatric brain cancer.
Family friend, Sandy Fallico was the brains behind getting a team together and getting the squad decked out in the awesome matching Budgy Smuggler pink daisy swimsuits (as chosen by Georgia!)
Georgia is a Robert Connor Dawes Foundation legacy ambassador (read more here) who was diagnosed with an anaplastic ependymoma at just 20 months of age. She has undergone numerous surgeries and treatments, something no child should have to go through. Despite this, Georgia continues to take it all in her stride, what her mum Rachelle calls “the epitome of heroism”.
The Brown family, along with their friends and family are positive about the future, committed to changing the odds for children with brain cancer and they even plan on doing the swim again next year – with an even bigger team!
Team Sweet Georgia Brown have done an incredible job, surpassing their fundraising goal of $15,000. If you want to contribute to the cause, donate here
