YOU are invited to take part on Saturday 24th February and Saturday 1st March 2018. Purley Swimathon gives your team of swimmers the opportunity to gather sponsorship for your organisation or a cause or charity you select.

Purley Rotary takes complete responsibility for running the event. Swimmers can be friends, colleagues or family members.  ..........
Over 350 swimmers took part in last years Swimathon and raised over £22,000. To date since the Swimathon started in 1988 we have raised over £500,000 for local charities and organisations.
Help us get to the next major milestone of £600,000.

Your team should have between 5 and 10 members who will swim on the day and collect sponsorship.
We organise everything for the Swimathon. After the event you send us the money you collect and we send you a cheque for 60% of the amount raised by your team to benefit your chosen charity or organisation.
