Swimarathon 2018

18th February 2018 Olympia Swimming Pool, Dundee

The Rotary Club of Dundee held their fifth Swimarathon event at Olympia Swimming Pool on Sunday 18th February.

Over 200 swimmers took part in the event which raised over £20,000 taking the total funds raised over five years to over £110,000.

Clive Murray, Chair of the organising committee said “The Swimarathon is a great opportunity for charities, youth organisations, sports teams and swimming clubs to raise much needed funds.”

This year teams from local schools, charities, businesses and sports clubs swam alongside representatives from Tayside Emergency Responders and Dundee Airport firefighters.

80% of funds raised by teams will go to the charity or organisation of their choice with the remaining 20% being donated to the Rotary Club of Dundee Trust to be distributed to local charities and the International End Polio Now campaign to help eradicate polio throughout the world.

The Dundee Swimarathon is part of the world’s biggest one-day swimming event, with Rotary Clubs all over the globe holding events to raise money for charities and the international End Polio campaign.

Following their swimming session, all participants received a certificate, goody bag and t-shirt and had a team photograph taken in the Activity Room at Olympia.
