Marie Curie Cancer Care is urging swimmers across Cornwall to sign up for their 2013 'swimathon' challenge.
Held at Truro Leisure Centre, Helston Sports Centre, Waterworld Newquay and Penzance Leisure Centre between April 26-28, the event sees swimmers challenge themselves through 5k, 2.5k and 1.5k individual challenges or team 5k/1.5k challenges, while raising funds to help Marie Curie Nurses care for terminally ill people.
Lynda Thomas Community Fundraising Manager for Cornwall says: “Every year people across the County take on a Swimathon challenge and have a great time raising funds along the way. You can even choose to take part individually or as part of a team. This year we hope even more people will take the plunge and raise funds to help Marie Curie Nurses provide more free nursing care to terminally ill people in their own homes.”
Swimmer entry is open at www.swimathon.org until April 24.
