We were approached about a remarkable little girl called Rosanna Ogden and we just had to share her story! Rosanna is 5 years old, and with a little help from friends and loved ones, is organising a sponsored swim for a UK heart charity.
Rosanna was born with a rare type of tumour called Rhabdomyoma and at just 6 weeks old she underwent heart surgery. We asked Rosanna a few questions about her sponsored swim.
So, why do you love swimming? Rosanna: It makes me super fast and because it makes me feel happy.
Why do you think more people should swim? Rosanna: Everyone should be able to swim by themselves so they can play in the water.
How do you feel when you’re swimming? Rosanna: Happy!!
Are you excited for the sponsored swim? How far will you be swimming? Rosanna: Yes! I am so so so excited. I am swimming one mile.
Are any of your friends doing the swim with you? Rosanna: Yes, from my class, they are coming to support me.
What made you want to raise money for charity? Rosanna: I want to raise it to help other people.
Do you see yourself swimming lots in the future? Rosanna:
