When Bryan Avery, a man who has swum not only the English Channel but also around the island of Manhattan, New York; across the Catalina Channel, of the coast of California and around the island of Kho Tao, Thailand, decided it was time to give back to swimming and help the children from deprived areas of the world to swim, he did so in a big way.
