Brand Ambassador 
Lewis Pugh?

The 48-year-old, British-born, Cape Town-native has won multiple environmental and philanthropic awards for his efforts and is the most respected long-distance swimmer in the world.

The five oceans cover 70% of our planet’s surface. Due to human interference, massive levels of pollution and global warming, they are in immediate danger.

By aligning our core values with Lewis Pugh and his Foundation, FXTM aims to play a part in keeping our global marine ecosystem clean, healthy and flourishing.

There is no green, without blue.

“The Long Swim”

  • No human has ever swum the entire length of the English Channel
  • Equivalent to 16 back-to-back English Channel crossings
  • Spanning 530km, this will be a world-first long-distance swim
  • A 1 ½ month swim for a bluer planet
  • Only 7 square kilometers of the Channel are fully Marine Protected Areas (MPAs)
  • The start of a decades-long effort to secure 30% of the world’s oceans as MPAs by the year 2030
