Together, let’s swim for hope!

26 April 2023

Once again this year, Léman hope is organizing the Swim4hope charity and sports challenge to support, inspire and empower young people in recovery from cancer!

🏊‍♂️ What is it? A 100km relay swim between Chateau de Chillon and Geneva, spread over 4 days from sunrise to sunset. A news addition for this 2023 edition of swim4hope now includes the lateral crossing of Lake Geneva with the 24 round trip Ouchy to Evian, and back before the road continues towards Geneva!

🏊‍♂️ When will it take place? From August 30th to September 2nd 2023

🏊‍♂️ Where? Apart from the Evian traverse on day 2, the rest of the course hugs the Swiss shore, with 3 or 4 team switching points each day, with each team of up to 9 swimmers covering between 5 and 12km between them, in whatever distances each person wants.

🏊‍♂️ Who is it for? Any company wishing to share a sporting and inspiring challenge for a great cause. Each team will choose one or more of the relays legs. For those who wish to join this challenge on and individual basis, you will have the possibility to swim the last kilometre from the Perle du Lac to the Bains des Pâquis. The rest of your team and our staff, including our actual Léman hope skippers,  will be at your side to support you and accompany you from the same sailing boats used on the trips we offer the young cancer survivors.

🏊‍♂️ Why do you want to do this? Inspire your employees, and not just those swimming. Build your team spirit and improve employer branding. Quality time, in a sporting and convivial environment on your team sailing boat. Train together in the months prior. All whilst supporting the charity project Léman hope. Each participating team commits  to raising the maximum amount of funds possible to support the fight against childhood cancer. The minimum donation is 5,000 CHF which also covers the costs of organising the event. Support the adventure that will change their lives!
