Swim across Mozambique Channel to raise funds for children born with cleft palates

Swim across Mozambique Channel to raise funds for children born with cleft palates

Two South African swimmers, Thane Williams and Jonno Proudfoot, will in March 2014 attempt to swim 450km from Mozambique to Madagascar in under 35 days in an effort to raise funds for the Cipla Miles for Smiles initiative. It is the first time that a South African team will attempt to swim the longest open ocean unassisted stage swim across the Mozambique Channel. Proudfoot and Williams explain that making a difference to someone’s life and creating awareness for the problem of cleft lips and palates will be the thoughts that drive them to complete the swim.
