XXI Swimming Tour around Formentera against Cystic Fibrosis
This new edition comes after a one-year break forced by the pandemic. It does not do it in the same conditions as in previous editions, but with the same illusion on the part of the Organization to make a unique and exclusive event. Therefore, we want to thank more than ever the support and confidence of TALAT and for helping us to materialize actions that improve the environment.
Talat comes from Talaiot, a prehistoric structure characteristic of the Balearic Islands that symbolizes for them the origins of the engineer’s thinking.
In Talat, they transmit their commitment through their origins, simplicity and solidity of their team. They have 6 lines of business: engineering, project management, installations, software and maintenance.
What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic, serious and degenerative disease that to date has no cure.
It mainly affects the respiratory, digestive, reproductive and sweat glands.
Currently, more than 2,000 mutations are known to cause the disease.
Statistics show that 1 in 5,000 people in Spain has Cystic Fibrosis (1 in 6,400 in the Balearic Islands) and 1 in 35 people is a carrier of a gene that causes the disease.
In the Balearic Islands there are 73 known diagnosed cases, but statistics speak of between 85 and 90 possible cases.
The awareness project of the Respiralia Foundation aims to raise awareness of this disease in order to discover those cases of people who have Cystic Fibrosis but have not yet been diagnosed.
