Why do I swim?
My name is Luke Richards and I am a recovered Alcoholic and an Ultra-marathon swimmer. Over 8 years ago my life was on a singular trajectory, I was caught in the cycle of addiction with no hope of recovery.
With the help of lots of people I did recover, and have been blessed with an amazing life.
I believe that we write addicts off as "lost causes" and I am swimming to show that we have the capacity to change a live amazing lives.
"Every addict deserves the opportunity to change, to balance the ledger and show the world that they can live positive lives."
