Carina Bruwer, lead player of SAMA Award-winning instrumental pop group Sterling EQ, successfully rounded Cape Point, finishing the 8km extreme swim equipped only with a standard swimming costume, cap and goggles, according to open water swimming rules. The “Swim for Hope” was in support of the Little Fighters Cancer Trust (LFCT), a local charity that offers support to children with cancer and their families, which Carina and Sterling EQ actively support, and marked Carina’s return to open water swimming after a 6 year break during which she became a mother of two.


Carina and The Little Fighters Cancer Trust are hoping to raise R25,000 for the Bag of Hope Project. Public as well as corporate contributions are encouraged and can be made here on
