One more year, we will have the sponsorship of Vertex Pharmaceuticals in Formentera. The XXI Swimming Tour around Formentera against Cystic Fibrosis has once again aroused the interest of this great pharmaceutical company.
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 Vertex Pharmaceuticals for his help in these difficult moments.
