Madswimmer Bering Strait Swim 2014

Stage 6: Asia to North America

The charity this year would like to attempt to swim between Asia and North America- swimming from the Big Diomede Island (Russia) to the Little Diomede Island (US). This year with your help, Madswimmer will be setting numerous records- all in aid of children’s charities:

1st Ever series of swims across the world connecting 7 continents.

1st Ever South Africans/ Africans to swim between the Diomede Islands.

3rd Ever swimmers to attempt the full crossing between Asia and North America.

Due to logistical and medical challenges we require sponsors this year. Even though the swimmers carry their own expenses, flight, accommodation and meals, to make the swim possible the charity requires sponsorship only for the day of the swim. The amount would add up to $82 000 US.
