Project aim

 

British endurance swimmer Anna Wardley plans to become the first person to swim 215km between the major Balearic islands and mainland Spain to raise funds and awareness for three marine-related organisations.

About the project

In June 2015 Anna announced her intention to become the first person to swim between Menorca, Mallorca, Ibiza and mainland Spain at the Club de Mar - Mallorca in Palma. Without a wetsuit and swimming under strict Channel swimming rules, she will face jellyfish, busy shipping lanes and the prospect of swimming for up to 40 hours non-stop.

This rewards-based crowdfunding campaign has been launched to cover the costs of undertaking this ambitious project including training costs, physiotherapy, support craft, fuel, team kit, volunteer support crew travel costs and the all important lanolin that Anna is smeared in before she swims. Anna is raising funds for three marine-related organisations in the Balearic Islands, and by covering her costs vis this method 100 percent of donations recieved during her campaign which will launch on 1 January 2016 will go directly to her three chosen charities (Marine Inspirations, Joves Navegants and Marine Animal Rescue Programme).

 

Anna has proved that she has the stamina and determination to complete a challenge of this magnitude but she needs your help to cover the significant associated costs. Pledge your support today and recieve one of the exclusive rewards on offer to backers.

 

 

Help Anna to stretch the limits of human endurance. #NeverDuckOut

Thank you for your support.
