With temperatures that would make your fridge jealous, strong streams, oversized supertankers and unfriendly wildlife, crossing the English Channel is far from being a stress-free experience!
In September 2015, we will be swimming the English Channel in a relay style. The crossing starts in England and ends in France.

« La Pouponnière » is a charity in Brussels (Belgium) which supports children in need up to 6 years old. It currently hosts 32 children whose physical and emotional needs are threatened by severe family difficulties: unstable, uncaring, neglecting or even abusive parents are among the reasons why these infants are placed in this institution.
Despite public funding sources, « La Pouponnière » exhibits a constant structural deficit. Each year, the institution has to find alternative funding to meet its financial obligations and improve the well-being of the children it hosts.

To finance these projects, « La Pouponnière » needs:
