Swim The Channel Challenge 2019

Image module

 Take on the challenge of swimming from Dover to Calais, but in the comfort of a swimming pool. Aim to complete the 21 miles in 12 weeks or less, between 1 April and 24 June.

If you’re an experienced swimmer or are looking to improve, this is a great way to work towards a goal whilst supporting a fantastic cause.

It’s free to register and we’ll send you a fundraising pack with everything you need to complete the challenge including:

A sponsor form and advice about setting up an online page
A diary to keep track of your lengths
Fundraising hints and tips

Every penny you raise will help support patients and families at a really difficult time.

If you’ve got any questions about the challenge, contact Emily on 0113 218 5559 or email emilyc@st-gemma.co.uk.
