Read Mission Statement

I always loved swimming in open water. There is something about swimming in cold water that gives it a meditative quality I love.

I pledge to swim every day in open water at Lake Constance until january 1st 2011 to raise money for charity water.

I live in Konstanz and I feel priviliged to be able to swim every single day in such an amazing natural environment while so many people are struggling to find clean water.

I will be reporting about my progress on twitter (@francis_dierick) and at http://www.coldwaterswimming.com. I'm using the quantt hashtag syntax to describe my daily efforts, so on my twitter profile you will see things like #swim:20min

This campaign brought clean water to Gira-Mechen Community, Ethiopia.

Learn about the water crisis

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
