Charity kid in the swim

WITH sheer and unbridled perseverance and dedication, young Jindy Boyle has decided to advance his 30-day swimming charity fundraiser into a year-long event.

Braving the chilly waters of Princess Royal Harbour every single day since May, Jindy has swum laps of the coastline to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

He competed in the Big Freeze for MND fundraiser earlier this year and smashed his first fundraising goal of $1,000.

But Jindy decided it wasn’t enough, committing to another two months of swimming until he reached $2,000.

Family and friends thought Jindy was going to wrap up his swimming last week following a ‘grand finale’ swim he convinced them all to participate in but alas, young Jindy had other plans.

“I am hoping to complete a whole year of swimming and hopefully raise a lot more money for MND!” Jindy said.

“The more I’ve talked to people, the more I have found out that lots of people’s families have been hurt by this rotten thing.”

Mum Tamara Boyle is incredibly proud.

“In such trying times, it’s so nice to see someone doing something for someone other than themselves, without any expectation of gratitude,” she said.
