Reminder: Swimathon 2011

A little reminder for anyone who would like to take part in or support community action to raise money for cancer care.

The National Swimathon, which is 25 years old this year will be taking place from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th April

Since the Swimathon was launched in 1986, £35 million has been raised for a host of good causes, and over half a million swimmers have taken part.

This year Swimathon aims to raise over £2 million for Marie Curie Cancer Care and The Swimathon Foundation.

In West Cumbria you can take part at Copeland pool in Hensingham on Sunday 10th April.

I will be taking part in this year's Swimathon in April for the 18th consecutive year. I plan to swim 5,000 metres at Copeland pool on the morning of Sunday 10th April.

Anyone who would like to sponsor me and support Marie Curie cancer care can do so at the swimathon website here.

Anyone who is interested in signing up to take part in the swim can also do so at the Swimathon 2011 website at
