Quinn Darragh & Luke Stewart

Take on your own challenge

Quinn and Luke Swim - English Channel 2020

Meet best mates Quinn Darragh and Luke Stewart. They love a challenge and a good cause. In September 2020 the challenge is to individually swim 36 km in very cold water from England to France.
They are doing this to support a cause close to both of their hearts. Quinn's son Ryder was born prematurely at 27 weeks at the Royal Hospital for Women, and he survived thanks to state of the art lifesaving equipment donated by Running for Premature Babies. One of the most important pieces of equipment that saved Ryder was a Nava Ventilator.
Thankfully, Ryder is now a healthy 6 year old, and now Quinn and Luke want to help others be as lucky as Ryder. That’s why they are taking on this big challenge.  By supporting Quinn and Luke you’ll be helping provide one more Nava Ventilator for the hospital, which will save the lives of more than 600 critically ill and premature babies each year!! Every single cent you donate goes towards this life saving equipment.

Thank you to my Sponsors
