Get set to swim your best again in 2019!
The Swimathon Foundation is once again joining forces with Swim England for the school swimming programme that helps all children to swim their best. Returning after the success of the past six years, this programme helps raise the profile of curriculum swimming as well as supporting Swim England's vision to increase participation and to have every child learn to swim before they leave primary school.
Swimathon president and Olympic god medallist, Duncan Goodhew went to visit two schools that have been strong advocates for School Swimathon this year; Henry Cavendish Primary School in Balham and Engayne Primary School in Upminster. At both schools, Duncan led an inspirational assembly followed by a fun swimming session.
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 neat new logo, a fresh new website and the same fantastic swimming challenge. School Swimathon is back for 2017 and is better than ever before!
