Cameron Keith is a 15-year-old vision-impaired swimmer who will attempt to swim 27.1 km between Green Island and Yorkey’s Knob, a beach suburb of Cairns, Australia on August 3rd.

If his charity swim on behalf of the Fred Hollows Foundation goes well, he will also attempt a Molokai Channel crossing in September.

Born without sight in one eye, Keith is swimming for others. “Being blind in my left eye from birth I understand the difficulties of vision impairment.

The Fred Hollows Foundation provides excellent support for the vision impaired and I am looking to raise $5,000 for The Foundation
.”
