The members of the Can Caralleu team tell us their personal and sporting experience in Oncoswim, in which they have participated for the second time.
The team formed by workers and friends of Can Caralleu raised the 500 € necessary to participate, organizing solidarity sports activities, with the collaboration of the club. All the collection of this route is in favor of the Oncolliga and goes for the investigation of Cancer of triple negative breast.

Pau: Oncoswim is a test that is part of the Oncolliga, it is an open water crossing solidarity and all that is collected goes for the investigation of the triple negative breast cancer.

It motivated us that here, Can Caralleu, we saw that there was a team that was going to the Trailwalker and we who are aquatic, Marc, Jorge, Oriol and I looked for something similar to open water .

Jorge: The Oncoswim is a crossing in open waters of 30 km and the difficulty is mentally facing the 30 km but the coolest thing is that we do it for teams. It can be done individually and each person will make the 30 km, or do what we did in the first and second editions that was to combine and go back.

The Oncoswim leaves from the port of l'Estartit, we go to the Medes Islands, from there we go to the Formigues Islands and we head to Calella de Palafrugell, which is where the test ends.

Marc: The fact of going with equipment and carrying a support boat helps you relieve resting on the boat, where we had the supply, our drink and everything we needed for the test.

I did not finish the first edition because when you boarded the boat you left, you changed plans and I had to withdraw. The fact of doing a second edition, was due to a personal challenge of being able to finish it, which I could do thanks to my colleagues, who helped me throughout the year to prepare it.

We would recommend all those who like to swim in open water and in a team, because it is something that is not individual but that you help with your peers to finish it, and that is something that helps you to grow up as a person to learn from everyone.

We will repeat because it has been a very good experience these two editions and we want to make a third to be able to try 30 km all at once.
