Follow Miles for Smiles

Mad Swim

The Mission

Thane Williams and Jonno Proudfoot will be the first two people in history to attempt this deemed impossible swim. In March 2014 they will attempt to swim 500km from Mozambique to Madagascar in just 25 days. It will be recorded as one of the longest official stage swims in history. The swim aims to ignite hope by raising funds and awareness for Miles for Smiles. Thane and Jonno will then deliver the Ignite Hope Journal to the President of Madagascar where he will enter into the diary, what he feels will Ignite Hope for the future of Madagascar and Africa.

Who we are

The Cipla Foundation was formed to assist Operation Smile in creating awareness for the plight of children born with cleft lips and palates and raise funds to perform corrective surgery on them. The foundation has a fundamental aim, to inspire and challenge individuals to go out and make a difference in the lives of those around them, by challenging themselves to achieve the impossible.
