From July 1 to 3, 235 swimmers participated at the twelfth Swimming Tour around Formentera against Cystic Fibrosis. A video clip of the song “Dalo todo” was recorded during the event.
Respiralia 2011 will be remembered for recording a video clip of a very special song and for staying for the first time at the new Sport Center of Formentera.
Toni Santos, a boy with cystic fibrosis, is the author of the lyrics of the song “Dalo todo”, and he has been able to convey what the ones who had been lucky enough to live the Swimming Tour around Formentera since its beginnings feel. Moreover, the singer Jaime Anglada from Mallorca gave color to this letter with a very Mediterranean and sweet music, flavored with his torn voice and the soft voice of Marta Elka and her violin. It is a combination that transports us to Formentera each time you listen to it. Pau Donés, from Jarabe de Palo, and Noemí Galear, from Gestmusic, have collaborated in this project as all participants in this edition of the Swimming Tour around Formentera.
Finally, Adan and Edu make their best and create a story to put images to this song. This story is led by a girl who comes across a child with cystic fibrosis at the Formentera Port. A fortuitous meeting that will turn into a great friendship.
From the Respiralia Foundation we want to thank Toni Santos, Marta Elka, Jaime Anglada and his musicians, and Adan and Edu this altruistic effort that will be used so that cystic fibrosis, the Swimming Tour around Formentera and the Respiralia Foundation can spread their message to many families through this video clip.
Regarding to the sporting event, we can say that all comments from the participants have been very positive. The change to the Sports Center due to circumstances beyond the organization’s will has been finally a positive option, although it is unlikely that we can repeat our stay at these facilities.
As for the stages, although we had some unwanted guests (jellyfishes) and a stretch with the sea too moved, swimmers enjoyed the crystal waters of Formentera, the music of our DJ Gus and recording of the video clip.
Our most sincere thanks to all of you who choose Respiralia to spend part of your holiday to “breath for all of them who can not do it” and to all the volunteers team who made an exceptional job.
