Cadiz Human Rights  Day Swim

Cadiz Human Rights Day Swim

Over 100 cold water swimmers are set to race 2.5K in the typically cool 13°C waters of Camps Bay, Cape Town, South Africa on March 21st to raise funds for abused women and children and to celebrate Human Rights Day.

The Cadiz Human Rights Day Swim is part of the Cadiz Swim Series, a host of cold water sea swims which promote ocean swimming and raise funds for good causes. Entry fees and a contribution from the Cadiz Financial Services Group will make up a R10,000 donation to Sisters Incorporated, a shelter for abused women and children.

Linda Fugard, manager of Sisters Incorporated, said, “I am thrilled by the event. With NGOs struggling to make ends meet this is a ray of sunshine for us. We’ll be cheering the swimmers on from the beach as we celebrate Human Rights Day.”

Cadiz CEO and extreme swimmer Ram Barkai explained, “The events celebrates human rights which was why funds raised would go to a shelter promoting the rights of women and children. We pay tribute to these extreme swimmers for showing their support for human rights by entering this race and we salute Sisters Incorporated for the work they do. We are proud to be playing a small part to promote human rights for all.”

It is also a qualifying race for the extreme 7.5K Cadiz Freedom Swim from Robben Island to Big Bay in May.
