Ben has taken the challenge to swim the narrow English Channel, navigating 13 hours of challenging water

The narrow 21 mile (32 kilometer) stretch of water, between the southern coast of England and the northern edge of France endures changeable weather and as such, completion times vary wildly due to the individual athlete's own ability.

About Ben Beard

Owner and Operator of Red Cliff Homes

Ben grew up boating and swimming his whole life and he is very excited on partnering with Grant Cardone Foundation conducting a fundraising event. Ben will swim the English Channel this summer to raise $50,000 or more.

This will be his first English Channel swim where he placed this goal as his "Ultimate 10X Goal". He was only able to accomplish this goal based off his learnings from Grant on creating a business, 10X goals, and having family support.
