Southern Lakes Swimming Club are fundraising for St Johns with a 24 hour swim

Between midday on Saturday 31st October and midday Sunday 1st November, club swimmers from SLSC have organised this 24 hour swimming event. We are collectively attempting to swim 10,000 lengths or 250km of Alpine Aqualand pool.

Along with the public and our swimming community, every swimmer appreciates the services provided by St Johns and know that fundraising is vital to their organisation. We would like to raise at least $2500 (that’s $10 per km) for St John but the possibilities for donations are infinite. St John will be coming along with buckets for gold coin donations during the event.

All our swimmers are keen to get involved and are asking their friends, families, colleagues and community to support them. We are also keen to involve local businesses who can help. We’ve set up a Give a Little page for donations.

Only registered member swimmers will be permitted to swim whilst the pool is closed to the public during the night. Some supporters and the committee are planning to bring sleeping bags and camping mattresses and stay all night! We will have lifeguards throughout the event to ensure our swimmers safety and many of the committee are qualified First Aiders too. If anyone else would like to be there all night - please let us know.

The swimmers can request an approximate time(s) they’d like to swim and we have a lane booked out for the whole 24 hours. If we overspill more than 8 per lane, we hope to be able to use other lanes - and of course at night the pool is exclusively ours!

See you in the water!
