Founder of Balearic Yoga Lisa Shaw, has started the long training program in which the end result will see her swimming the 69km perimeter of Formentera Island, one of the 5 islands that make up the Baleares. As the first ever person to attempt this, the Balearic Challenge will consist of Lisa swimming 23km per day over 3 consecutive days.
Why? you may ask and Lisa´s answer is simple...´I love open water swimming, I love the Baleares, and I want to raise awareness and money for charity´
The two charities Lisa has chosen to do the swim for are APNEEF (The association of persons with special needs of Ibiza and Formentera) a charity helping better children and young adults with disabilities through therapy treatments and activities.
90% of the money donated to APNEEF is used for offering a wide range of therapies for the individual, and for helping widen the training and knowledge of the therapists and staff involved. This ensures the children are receiving the best up to date care that can be offered to them. The children are able to enjoy a variety of activities from weekends away, swimming, cinema, horse riding and more and with your donation you can help towards offering these children and young adults a better way of life.
The other charity close to Lisa´s heart is her fathers charity ´The Mountain Way´ which focuses on ex-service men who are suffering the difficulties of PTSD. The Mountain Way offers a 60 day cycle which climaxes in an intensive 15 day one-to-one experience in the French Pyrenees in the summer, and Ibiza in the winter, also offering ongoing support for as long as required.
