Ray Gandy and Elaine Howley will attempt a 50-mile swim in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island.

The two English Channel swimmers are expected to swim 25–30 hours in the unprecedented swim.

Help us towards our goal of raising US$5000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society,” explained Ray. “My wife Donna was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in 1992. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society plays an active role in research, advocacy and information sharing regarding treatments and cures. I have personally chosen this organization to benefit from a portion of the proceeds from this swim that will start on July 9th.”
