about Madswimmer

There aren’t many charities that would swim for hours in the Alaskan Pacific with pods of Orcas lurking in the depths. There aren’t many charities putting their lives at risk to benefit others. Madswimmer is a charity involved with daring swimming challenges to raise funds for children. By risking our lives we are investing everything. If we don’t, how can we expect sponsors to invest? Facing threats might mean we’re mad but we have to be even madder not to care”. – Founder Jean Craven.
