“The irony of spinal cord injury is this — in one second your life changes. Everything you know is gone and it takes more than you know to start again.”

On August 9th, Trent Theroux is going to attempt to swim across the English Channel.  The channel measures 21 miles from England to France. However, the currents move northeast to southwest making the swim up to 30 miles long.  The English Channel is considered to be the most challenging marathon swim in the world. In fact, three times more people have climbed Mount Everest than swam across the Channel.  As a sign of solidarity with the spinal cord injured community, Trent will make the entire swim backstroke.
