I swim to raise funds for France Choroïdérémia, a non-profit that supports boys and men affected by a rare disease that gradually makes them lose their vision. I also wish to raise awareness for Choroideremia so that one day, all children who are affected by the disease will have a hope to be cured. This disease traps people in darkness like a prison, as prisoners are trapped into buildings when they are in jail. That's why I've decided to embark on a swim challenge called “Prison Island Swims,” to escape from prisons by swimming and raise funds to fight this terrible disease.
Swimming gives me a feeling of freedom and escaping. To swim in a natural environment, without a wetsuit and without fins, gives me the sensation to be as free as the water. For the “ Prison Island Swims” project, I escape from famous prisons located on islands by swimming to the closest continental landmass, whether it's 100 m or 25 km.
All the money I raise goes towards
Please help children affected by the disease and donate here. It's very easy and 100% secured. Thank you for your support !
