This year will be the fifth time that I have taken part in Swimathon and my third year of being a Swimathon Ambassador. The experience of being an Ambassador doesn’t get any less exciting and is still just as special, each time.
Open Water Swimathon
Open Water Swimathon aims to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie, two causes close to the nation’s hearts.
On the weekend of Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September, over 1,500 swimmers across the UK took on an open water swimming challenge from 500m up to 5k.
So far we’ve raised over £50,000 for our incredible charities, but we can’t stop there!
