Rachel Schoeler of Fraser Riverkeeper

Just  a reminder, Rachel Schoeler will be attempting her 35 kilometre swim across the Georgia Strait from Neck Point, Nanaimo to Sechelt on August 3rd. By doing this swim, Rachel hopes to increase awareness on the importance of healthy British Columbia waterways.

Donations will go towards the Fraser Riverkeeper Shore Patrol Swimmable Water Project that will be actively educating BC swimmers on water quality issues, how to reduce health risks from swimming in polluted recreational water, and how citizens can improve the water quality at their favourite beach.

Rachel’s Donation Page – Please help her reach her goal, Thank you!
