The Great Shark Swim - 100km in 1 day

The Great Shark Swim - 100km in 1 day

Personal message

From Robben Island to conquering the English Channel to Swimming with Sharks - Donate and be part of this challenge!

We are both raising awareness of the declining numbers in the shark population and contributing towards children who are less fortunate than our own through the Madswimmer non-profit organisation.

By swimming among sharks, unprotected, we want to demonstrate sharks are amazing creatures and not the killers they have been made out to be.
