Personal Challenge

I'm attempting the biggest physical challenge of my life, in one of the most important things on earth: The Ocean. Covering 70% of the world's surface, it is easy for those who don't live near the ocean to forget or even realize the ocean's importance to human survival. Make a pledge to not only offer moral support to my challenge, but to also do your part in marine conservation for future generations.

My Story

NOTE: As of 18th March 2016, the venue for this campaign has been changed from the Kapas-Marang International Swimathon, to the Raleigh Round Island Challenge.

Hello! I'm Davina Goh, a Malaysian host, performer, and health and fitness enthusiast.

As a swimming ambassador of Advanced Aquatics & Zen Swim Malaysia, I'll be taking part in the Raleigh Round Island Challenge, held between 27-29 May 2016, where I will swim 9km around Perhentian Islands, South China Sea waters, off the coast of Terengganu State.

Until now, I had never done any '-athon' in my life. (Well, I've done a 'Lord Of The Rings' Movie Marathon before... the outcome was embarrassing.) So I will need all the moral support I can get for this swimathon!

The sea means a lot to me, so this is also a unique chance for me to spread awareness about ocean conservation.

Show your support by pledging towards my Epic Swimathon Challenge! All proceeds will go to two NGOs of my choice:

Reef Check Malaysia (http://reefcheck.org.my/)
Trains volunteers to become 'EcoDivers', led by scientists, to regularly monitor
and report on the health of reefs

Marecet (http://marecet.org/)
Does research and conservation activities to further understand marine mammals (whales, dolphins, porpoises & dugongs) and the greater marine environment in Southeast Asia

Looking forward to your pledges to keep our oceans thriving! No pledge is too small and every sen will go far :)
