Swim for Hope Heading to Italy
Swim for Hope is heading to Italy’s warmer waters!
Carina Bruwer will be attempting a rare crossing of the Strait of Bonifacio (15km) between Corsica (France) and Sardinia (Italy) on 15 June, which has been officially achieved only once before by a trio of British swimmers.
On 20 June Carina will attempt an unprecedented 14km quadruple crossing of the Messina Straits between Sicily and Calabria which, if successful, will make her the first woman to cross this unpredictable stretch of ocean more than twice. For this swim, she will be joined by Irish marathon swimming legend Ned Denison, who is – like Carina – one of just five swimmers ever to have conquered the notorious 36km False Bay crossing, widely regarded as one of the most challenging marathon swims in the southern hemisphere.
These attempts of course, will mean a great deal for Childhood Cancer Awareness, and will again be done as a fundraiser for Little Fighters Cancer Trust, for the work that we do for Children with Cancer in South Africa.
So please also consider a donation. We are utilising an online fundraising platform, JustGiving, which will give our International Supporters the opportunity to support this fundraiser as well!
