Join us for the Rotary Swimarathon this Saturday 25th February to:

(1) Set a new World Record for the most number of people swimming at the same time
(2) Raise funds towards the elimination of Polio
(3) Increase the awareness of Rotary
(4) Encourage more people to swim and stay fit

The past 22yrs have seen the Rotary Club of Grantham,  England  hold a highly successful “RotarySwimarathon” raising over £500,000 for local charities and deserving causes.  In 2012 (apart from the usual event 3/4/5 Feb) they are holding an extra event – this will be in the form of a Rotary Global Swimarathon – setting a new World Record (presently 2533) for the most number of people swimming at the same time anywhere in the world and raising funds towards Rotary Internationals worldwide project to eradicate Polio.  To qualify for the World Record attempt each swimmer will have to swim just 100metres without stopping within the hour.
