For the ninth year in succession a group of swimmers will make the 5.4km open sea crossing from Mouse Island (Sıcan Adası) to Kalkan Beach on Sunday 15th September 2019

The swim will be organised by the local branch of the search and rescue organisation AKUT. Money raised on the day through collections and other events will be dedicated to supporting AKUT.

Individual swimmers also want to  raise money for their local charity either AKUT, KAPSA or Kaş4Kids through personal contributions.

If you want to support any of our swimmers you can contribute here. If you namecheck the swimmer in your message then your money will go to their nominated charity
