Swimalong - 2019
This is the third year we will have run this event and our chosen charity to benefit this year is the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
On Sunday 29th September, we have our charity event, SWIMALONG 2019.This is the third occasion we will have held our SWIMALONG challenge and our chosen charity this year is the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.As before, we hope to achieve a marathon through the cumulative efforts of our volunteer swimmers ... event details below.
Last year we achieved a creditable 37 km, a bit short of the total needed and in the process we raised over £3,000 for charity. This year, with strong support from some of our regular swimmers, we believe we have a very good chance of achieving the full marathon distance of 42 km ... but we still need more help.
We are seeking the support and swimming efforts of fellow Rotarians throughout the district, their partners, children, grandchildren and any friends and neighbours who would like to join in. Volunteers can choose to swim at the main event at West Wickham Leisure Centre, or for those living in other parts of the country, at their local pool. Download the following forms here:-
The RNLI has generously provided a two night bed and breakfast break in Poole, Dorset for our raffle prize winner raffle ... raffle details below.
Our one rule is that all individual swims must be completed by noon on Sunday 29th September. Entry to the event is free, as the money we raise for the RNLI is by swimmers gaining sponsorship.
