Why is Never Give Up Day celebrated on August 18?
Founded in May 2019, the first organizers sought to channel the full swing of the summer holidays into an awareness day, at a time where people all over the world people cross paths, celebrate and enjoy life. The date coincided with the achievement of the French swimmer Philippe Croizon back in 2012 who completed a swim to connect five continents using custom-made fins. The swimmer who lost all of his limbs in an electrocution accident hoped his accomplishments would inspire others with disabilities. Furthermore, it was later discovered that the oldest traceable text on the theme of Never Give Up, a poem written by Martin Farquhar Tupper, was published in a newspaper from Ann Arbor (MI) on August 18, 1845.
As the saying goes: Nothing is coincidence.
