Gita Swims Dead Sea for Madswimmers

Gita Swims Dead Sea for Madswimmers

Personal message

If you are on my BackaBuddy page then you are thinking of backing me... even if you are not quite sure what we are up to.

A few months ago I was approached by a friend to join her swim across the Dead Sea from Jordan to Israel as part of the MadSwimmer team.

Like you, I thought she must be MAD, but being a little mad myself, decided to take up the challenge and have started training towards the goal of swimming 16km at the lowest point on earth, in a body of water with a 30% saline level... which has NEVER been done before.

What keeps me focused is knowing that we are raising funds for charities that do incredible work, such as Just the One Foundation, The Children's Hospital Trust, Ikamva Labantu, Ort and many more that make the WORLD of difference to the lives of children and communities less fortunate than my
own.

We have funded our own trip and operational expenses are covered by corporate sponsorship, so YOUR donation goes 100% towards these deserving charities.

So here's to a successful crossing on the 15th November 2016, and an even more successful fund raising challenge!!!!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Gita
