Welcome to the '24-Hour swim challenge


Welcome to the heart of our mission – ‘When One Door Closes, Another One Opens’ – 24-Hour Swim Challenge. This is not just a swim, it’s a journey of resilience, determination, and giving back.


Who am I?

I'm Teodor Bogdanov, a former national rugby team representative with over 15 years of dedication to the sport. Early this year, life threw me a curveball in the form of a severe injury that threatened to close the door on my beloved rugby career.


Why this challenge?

In the face of adversity, I realized the need for a new challenge. The 24-Hour Swim Challenge was born from the desire to prove that when one door closes, another opens. It's a test of endurance, both physical and mental.


What is the challenge?

For 24 hours straight, I will swim, aiming to cover a minimum of two kilometers every hour. It's a grueling task, but it symbolizes the indomitable spirit to overcome adversity.


The cause

This challenge isn't just about me; it's about making a difference. The funds raised from this swim will support a vital cause: Aiding Families Facing Adversity and Contribution to MND / ALS: The proceeds will be dedicated to the Fight with the Motor Neuron Disease supporting directly affected families.


The promise

We promise to give our all in this challenge. We promise to swim not just for ourselves but for those who need support. We promise that your support, in any form, will make a profound difference.


The goal

Our goal is clear: to turn challenges into opportunities, to make a positive impact and contribute to the fight against Motor Neuron Disease. Thank you for joining us in this transformative journey. Together, we can prove that when one door closes, another opens. Let's dive into this challenge and make a lasting impact.
