This clip gives a glimpse of what could be expected when eight Madswimmers will attempt to set a world record on 5 December 2015.
They might need to cut open a lane of ice to swim the world’s highest lake at 6400 m above sea level on top of Mt Ojos del Salado in Chile.
No one has combined these extreme levels of altitude and cold before.
The Mt Ojos Swim aims to showcase the human spirit – to prove to the world what normal everyday people can do when they put their minds to helping others.
We believe in South Africa: This is our country, our home, and our love.
We believe that there is greatness written in our nation’s DNA, waiting to be unlocked, and that all that people have to do to unleash our potential is get involved.
We need to educate children and make sure they’re fed.
We need to keep them healthy and instil hope for their futures.
We need to take responsibility for where we are and refuse to leave it this way.
So how do we do this?
We set off one stroke at a time to cross continents so that we can join the funds needed with the things that will make our country great.
Facing freezing waters, crocodiles, sharks and killer whales might mean that we’re mad… but you’d have to be even madder not to care.
With their daring swims Madswimmer raises funds for various children’s charities.
