Christopher Judge will attempt a swim across the North Channel from Donaghadee, Ireland to Portpatrick, Scotland this September in order to raise funds for the Stephen Lyness Foundation, a friend who died 12 years ago from Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome.

I am really looking forward to the experience and knowing why I am doing it also helps spur me on,” Judge told Armagh I. “Stephen would have been 30 this year, he was a good friend of our family and I want to help raise as much money for his foundation as possible.”
