Maddie’s Ocean Swim

Maddison Woodbury competed in the Cole Classic Ocean Swim (5 km endurance swim) hosted by Manly Surf Club on Sunday 9th February. As a physiotherapist, Maddie is familiar with patients who struggle to cope with chronic pain. She nominated the Pain Foundation as her designated charity cause for her swim, and to date has raised over $1,800.

“It has been a privilege to support the Pain Foundation! Thankyou everyone for donating and the words of encouragement! It was a wonderful day to complete the 5km swim. We started at Shelly, swimming along Manly, North Steyne, Queenscliff, heading to Freshwater where we turned around and finished at Manly. Challenging surf, with dumping waves to battle through on return. No blue bottles or other big “marine life” were seen but lots of beautiful fish and amazing scenery to look at with every breath!
Thankyou to you all donating, much appreciated! Maddie
