New year, same mission for School Swimathon: inspire 16,000 pupils to ‘Swim their Best’! Created by The Swimathon Foundation, the charity behind Swimathon, the world’s largest annual fundraising swim, and Swim England, the national governing body for swimming in England, School Swimathon is setting the challenge to pupils all across the country to get the most from their school swimming lessons and swim further than they ever have before in 2018.
The Swimathon Foundation, the charity behind the hugely successful Swimathon campaign, is delighted to announce the introduction of a new challenge as part of the Swimathon family - Open Water Swimathon.
Following Swimathon’s recent 30th anniversary which has so far raised over £1.5 million, The Swimathon Foundation, the charity behind both events, is delighted to announce that Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie will be the official charity partners of Swimathon for the next four years.
A new strategy aimed at helping the country become healthy and active through swimming has been launched today by Swim England. Formally known as the Amateur Swimming Association, Swim England is the national governing body for swimming.
