Who are we?
BRAZADAS DE VIDA arises from the initiative of four swimmers of the Master Madrid Swimming Team. We strive hard to combine our professional life and our sporty life.
We love swimming in the sea and we have wanted through ocean swimming to go beyond sport...We want to achieve a positive impact on society.
That is why, Brazadas de Vida, we try to give visibility, raise awareness and denounce causes that we think they are current problems of society.

Our first challenge was in 2017, working with the NGO Proactiva Open Arms to help refugees in the Mediterranean. We swam together 18 km during six hours without stop. The crowfunding organized for them reached 10.000 €.
2019...TIME TO ACT AGAIN!
Being open water swimmers makes us to see more closely a problem that concerns to all of us: PLASTIC POLLUTION IN THE OCEAN.
Right now it is estimated that up to 12 million metric tons of plastic – everything from plastic bottles and bags to microbeads – ends up in our oceans each year. Plastic represents 90% of marine waste in the oceans. The World Forum has already warned that, if the situation does not improve, in 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the sea.
To end plastic pollution.
Inform on the topic of plastic pollution.
Inspire people to care about the issue and desire to be part of the solution.
Incite action on real solutions that will shift the global reliance on plastic.
Organize awareness initiatives developed around talks, volunteer activities and others
The European Environment Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of the environment through actions based on creating social awareness about environmental problems and the ability of citizens to contribute to their solution.
They have a strategy focuses on five points:
Build a social movement for "Plastic Free Oceans".
Deepen scientific knowledge.
Involve different sectors [industry, tourism, economics, research,...].
Promote circular economy and a new model of production and consumption.
With this challenge we want to generate an impact on society to recovery the relationship and empathy with the sea. That is why, we will swim on an area where protection measures are needed.
Our mission is use this event to raise awareness about plastic pollution and inspire the world to rethink their use of plastic.
We will swim together for more than eight hours without stop in the area of Regional Park Puntas de Calnegre – Cabo Cope.
