"We are delighted to support this extraordinary initiative and of course will find
you 5,000 swimmers around the SPEEDO world. We expect it to be many more.
It is likely we will organise a swim in each of the 170 countries around the world
in which SPEEDO operates.
We will ask our international organisation to coordinate our global effort and provide
support over the coming months as we make sure we pull together all other groups
in the world of swimming.
Not only is this a remarkable concept, it is also a fantastic life-changing cause
and one which we at SPEEDO will fully support.”
