Today I am incredibly proud and tremendously excited to share my next swimming adventure! This is a very special collaborative effort across five nations, and many months in the making. On Friday 5th May I will join 11 other swimmers from around the world, guided by six kayakers, on an unprecedented swim across the border from the USA to Mexico, in an effort to raise funds and awareness for the Colibrí Center for Human Rights. As a team we are motivated by our shared desire to be of service, utilizing our passion for swimming as a universal expression of kindness and unity. Our hope is that our swim inspires friends, families and communities - both near and far - to enable the Colibrí Center for Human Rights to continue its work on a larger scale and to inspire people from all walks of life to understand, appreciate and attempt to resolve political, cultural and social differences that may separate them from others. #swimming #unity #kindness #diplomacy #usa #mexico #pacs #kimswims #colibricenterforhumanrights #servicebeforeself
