This Saturday, five brave Maltese swimmers will swim along the entire perimeter of Gozo as part of the ‘Wave of Change’, joining the growing battle against single-use plastics and marine pollution.
The group of athletes-turned-activists will swim a total of 35 kilometres, and they’re aiming to get it done in under 11 hours.
Neil Agius, Richard Zerafa, Andrew Azzopardi, Steven Grech and Hannah Cutajar will be taking on the #WaveofChange and making it a point to get to the finish line together.
Last year, Neil Agius, Gilbert Bartolo and Richard Zerafa challenged themselves to swim around Malta in 24 hours. Agius was the only athlete to complete the arduous task; swimming 70km in just under 22 hours.
With only one day left, it’s not too late to support the Wave of Change, and it’s super easy to do so.
All you need to do is sign the pledge and pick up three pieces of trash, then upload a photo to Facebook using #WaveofChange, and challenge three friends or companies to do the same.
Lovin Malta has already taken part, after being nominated by Agius, with PN Leader Adrian Delia doing the same after we issued our challenge to him.
