THE ANNUAL Swimchix Swimathon is taking place this year on October 18 at the G. C. Jolliffe Swimming Pool in Pine Street. A great deal of support for the swimathon has already been shown by Pietermaritzburg communities,with the event shaping up to be one of the biggest yet.

A number of corporates have already confirmed their support in the form of lane sponsorship and many teams have booked their swimming time slots and have started raising funds.

The swimathon is an incredible, fun family event that takes place from midday all the way through to 9 pm.

Teams, families or individuals swim for 30 minutes continuously in designated time slots, all in support of charity.

Each team is tasked to raise funds for a number of the aQuellé Midmar Mile 8 Mile charities, including Singakwenza and Pink Drive, enabling the organisations to continue with the exceptional work they do.

According to Kath Boast from Swimchix: “Our aim this year is to try to exceed our fundraising of previous years and for this reason we are calling on all companies and the wider Maritzburg community to get involved.

“You can enter a team with colleagues, family or friends, or companies can sponsor a lane for R1 000.

“Alternatively, simply come down on the evening and be part of the incredible event.”

Be part of the fun and register your team or company sponsorship today by contacting Kath Boast at 082 784 3723 or Julie Hay at 082 445 6764.
