Foodbank Friend, Michael Powell, will be swimming the English Channel to raise $20,000 for Foodbank Queensland’s School Breakfast Program.
Michael is a local Brisbane hero with a passion for swimming complemented by a passion for helping Queenslanders who are doing it tough. Michael made a personal commitment in January 2016 to swim the English Channel during the English summer of 2017. A personal journey inspired by swimming legend, Des Renford, and the loss of loved ones at a young age.
The English Channel can be an unforgiving challenge being 32 kilometres in breadth on a good day. This August 2017, follow along with Michael’s journey to the other side of the world and back and help raise funds for a cause.
