Our teams have been training very hard to turn this dream in to a reality. To make sure, I swam the Straights of Gibraltar, Spain to Africa, on April 13th.”

“The others here in the US swam from 8 miles outside the Golden Gate bridge to San Francisco — all without wet suits of course, and train daily as well
.”

The Mexican swimmers are forced to go to a remote river in the mountains and swim in place for many hours against the current to get their training in. The commitment made by these swimmers is humbling to me, and all the effort is all for our two causes.”

The objective is to raise money for Wounded Warrior Project (on the US side) as well as breast cancer awareness on the Mexican side. The swim and journey will be filmed professionally in HD by one of the top producers in the media world. Gran Sueno Resorts is incredibly generous.”

You can follow the team’s progress starting May 24th at 6:00 am local time via Spot Tracker GPS which sends a signal every ten minutes. Nora Toledano, Mexico’s number one open water swimmer, will be the first swimmer to start this journey.”

This swim, considered by knowledgeable observers to be one of the major open water swimming events of 2010, is a charity swim where the American swimmers will raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project and the Mexican swimmers will raise money for the Por Ellas..Enlace, El Mar de Cortes III.
