In an incredible display of determination and courage, Gosens is set to become the first totally blind person to conquer the iconic English Channel in August 2024. Gerrard who was born completely blind will embark on the ambitious challenge to swim the 34km from Dover, UK to Calais, France. He will be battling strong currents, freezing waters and jellyfish, while wearing only bathers, goggles, and a swimming cap. Remarkably, more people have scaled Mount Everest than swum across the English Channel.
Glenn Vassallo, Managing Director of GRT Lawyers, the firm that established the GRT Foundation, is a proud advocate of Gerrard and his commitment to the Great Dreams Program.
