Meet some of the people who support The Climate Group
In late 2014, long-distance swimmer Ben Lecomte will swim 5,500 miles across the Pacific Ocean, in an environmental awareness-building and fundraising mission called The Longest Swim.
Not only is Ben going to set the world record for longest open water swim without a kickboard, he is also very keen to bring awareness through his swim to environmental sustainability and what we can do as individuals and as a collective, to make our world and our oceans, as healthy as they can be for our children and future generations.
Will Irlam and Marcus
In July 2013, Will Irlam and his friend Marcus decided to cycle from London to Edinburgh in order to raise awareness and much needed funds for The Climate Group.
At over 650 kilometers, it was an arduous undertaking, but a rewarding experience. Will reflects on his motivation and shares some tips for prospective fundraisers in an interview which you can read here.
Will says of the journey and fundraising: "We wanted to raise money and awareness for a forward thinking organization like The Climate Group that understands what is needed for mankind to live without exhausting our planet’s resources. We came across The Climate Group online and learned a bit more about the ‘Clean Revolution' and what The Climate Group is doing to turn the 'dream' of sustainable living in to a realistic future. That gave us the motivation to tackle the Edinburgh trip."
