EMSOL co-founder, Freddie Talberg, is part of the boat crew to support Andrew George, also an investor in EMSOL, on a charity swim across the English Channel. This is a first-time challenge for Andrew and he will be raising money for Aspire. The charity is dedicated to helping victims of spinal cord injuries overcome their situation and learn to lead active lives again.

Andrew is aiming for a target time of between 14-15 hours following a track starting just south of Dover, UK and landing on the peninsula called Cap Gris Nez, France. Only 1,731 swimmers have completed the solo journey to date so it remains an amazing feat of dedicated endurance.

Please support EMSOL and Andrew with this amazing challenge and his charity Aspire.   https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/drew-george19
