Adventurer Kevin Brady is expected to make history today as the first person to swim the entire 220 mile length of the River Severn. That's the equivalent of ten English Channel swims.
The 32 year-old from Gloucester, has had to battle hypothermic water, sharp debris, treacherous undercurrents, parasites, pollution and large boat traffic as he completes more than 10 miles a day. Today marks a month since he started the challenge.
Kevin has already raised over £10,000 for the Superhero Foundation, a charity Kevin co-founded with cousin and fellow fundraising adventurer Jamie McDonald. The charity assists families that need funds to access otherwise inaccessible treatments for mental or physical illness.
