LIKE A BUTT IN THE WATER

In June 2021, the four swimmers will relay each other night and day for an entire week to complete the 380km which separates Deauville from Paris. The objective of the 0 Mégot charity is to raise awareness and change the French mentality in adopting a simple change : throwing their cigarette butts in the trash.

4 SWIMMERS

After having swum across the Strait of Gibraltar, Lake Geneva, La Gironde and lake Baringo in Kenya, they want to glide on the surface of a river closer to home: the Seine
