24-hour relay to raise money for Rett Syndrome charity

If you fancy swimming through the night to raise money for charity, Vigour Events are holding a 24-hour relay swim to fund research into Rett Syndrome. The swim will take place at Pinkston Watersports, Glasgow, 10 to 11 July 2015. The lake will be floodlit at night and participants will be able to rest and refuel while their team mates continue swimming.
Rett Syndrome is a neurological disorder that affects seemingly healthy girls around their first birthday; it affects their ability to walk, talk and use their hands. Many girls also have seizures and have problems with breathing and eating. The charity Reverse Rett works to speed treatments and a cure for Rett Syndrome by funding research.
