Milan Canal Charity Swim – Saturday 9th September 2017

CFR Executive Search Alliance’s Italy partner, HumanValue International HR Solutions, participated in the Milan Canal Charity Swim last Saturday. Laura Townsend-Green, Director of CFR Global Executive Search and Senior Associate at Human Value International HR Solutions Italy, swam with 50 others in the 2.4k in the “Naviglio Grande starting from St Cristopher’s Church and arriving in the “Darsena”.

The swim is part of a series of initiatives organized by the Milan City Council and charitable organisations to animate the canals and entertain people living in Milan as well as the city visitors.  The aim is also to show people that the once polluted canals are now completely clean.

Swimmers came from all over Italy to participate in the 14 and 24k competitions starting outside Milan and finishing too in the Darsena.  A total of 110 swimmers took part in all 3 swims.  Swimmers and their supporters donated to a Milan charity dedicated to helping children in need to receive free swimming lessons.

……………..come and swim with us next year!
