Holly Stout swims the Serpentine to raise funds for FRU

Holly's Story: Last year I swam 1 mile in the Serpentine for FRU.  Having found the water surprisingly pleasant, and dodging the swans (who were apparently oblivious to the hundreds of swimmers) not too daunting, this year I have set myself the much more significant challenge of swimming 2 miles.  I am preparing for it by swimming as yet somewhat inadequate distances around far-flung islands of the British Isles: Orkney and the Isles of Scilly.  While 2 miles still seems like a very long way, my hope is that the temperature of the Serpentine will seem positively balmy in comparison.
