Maura Twomey Swims the English Channel

Congratulations to Maura Twomey!  Maura completed her first one-way crossing of the English Channel (Dover, England to Cran d'Escalles, France) in 16 hours 23 minutes on Friday July 10th! Not only was this a fantastic personal accomplishment, but Maura also used this as an opportunity to raise funds for Build4life, a charity focused on developing life saving inpatient and outpatient cystic fibrosis facilities in hospitals across Ireland. 

Thanks to Maura's crew member, fellow CMSCer Jen Downing, for this great photo of the crossing!
