About us

For the 3rd consecutive year we freeze in order to raise awareness for mental health. We are two friends, Mona & Kristin who love swimming in summers and winters. Before Christmas we swim 24 days in a row in Zürich's frigid waters and invite you in to join us! The water is not that cold (yet).

And promised, it's fun!

Our main goal

Cold water swimming boosts your mental health!

Did you know that cold water swimming not only boosts your immune system, but also wakes you up better than coffee and makes you feel like you can do anything? So there is nothing better than starting your day with a dip. Do it together with us!

24 Days 24 Dips Mental Health

We aim to combine fun with mental health, raising not only awareness for psychological discomfort, but also raising funds for the Institut Kinderseele Schweiz, a Swiss national institution taking care of children who grow up in families with mental health issues. The Institut Kinderseele Schweiz has one clear objective: that children who face mental health difficulties in their families grow up as psychologically healthy individuals.
