In April 2017 Michael Ventre Will Swim From New York To London To Raise Millions Of Pounds For Oxfam to Help End Extreme Poverty


Michael will swim 3800 miles across the Atlantic to inspire others around the world to take a stand and play their part but he can't do this without your support. He is seeking funding to help him tackle this huge feat in the form of brand sponsorship, crowdfunding and donations.

”I was both astonished and hugely impressed when I heard about Michael’s plan to swim from New York to London in aid of Oxfam. Michael is a wonderful example of someone who, like us, won’t live with poverty, and it is humbling to think that his passionate dedication to fighting poverty has led him to attempt such an enormous feat. We are immensely grateful to him and his team for the hard work they are putting in to making Michael’s dream a reality.

Like the swim, ending poverty may seem impossible, but we can end this injustice. By working together, we can create a fairer, safer world where everyone has the chance to reach their full potential. I hope you will join me in supporting Michael as he takes on this mammoth challenge for the 1.2 billion people currently living in extreme poverty.”
