On the 22nd and 23rd of January, twenty nine swimmers took to the water to achieve a new feat in South Africa: a twenty four hour swim to raise funds. The event was organised by Madswimmer, a non-profit organisation of extreme sportsmen who complete insane challenges to raise funds for children in need.

THANK YOU Madswimmer! You raised R62 173 for the children of Ga-Dikgale, Limpopo. The funds raised will be used towards the construction of a building for Konoto Creche, an Early Childhood Development Centre in Dikgale village. Check out the Madswimmmer Facebook page for photos of the cheque handover at Konoto!

Thank you to all of you who supported this cause. A special thanks to ER24, Bos Sport, Techniblock and Speedo for your sponsorship!
