Georgia to swim butterfly 2.2km across Byron Bay for cancer
MY name is Georgia Quinn and I'm a 21-year-old Southern Cross University music student from Ballina.
This May I will be swimming 2.2km of butterfly - from Wategos Beach to Main Beach at Byron Bay - in order to raise money to fight mantle cell lymphoma, a rare type of cancer that is directly affecting our community at the moment.
Recently a close family friend was diagnosed with the illness.
I feel that in doing this, I will be doing my best to help out Ballina families that are suffering right now, and indirectly help people in the wider community - as well as our country.
