Humans of Swimrise: Why do you swim?
Detty Moore: The water gives me so much energy. I always have a fear every day going in but it is wonderful to overcome that fear.
The biggest part of the joy of swimming is meeting a community of people who also share my love of the sea.
HoS: What is your favourite part of the swim?
DM: My favourite part of the swim is waiting in silence for the sun to rise with like minded people. I also love the way I feel when I put my head under the water and surface with all my worries and concerns washed away.
HoS: How do you feel after your swim?
DM: After my swim I feel very refreshed and blessed to be surrounded by smiling faces that exude positive energy for the new day. I have no doubt that this energy is contagious and I can take it with me for the rest of the day and hopefully share it with others.
