24hr Swim Relay: Lake32
The challenge is simple. Gather a team of up to 8 swimmers and swim for an hour each, for 24 hours. It really doesn’t matter what your ability is. It’s not a race, no one is being timed or tracked. You swim as much as you want, as fast as you want.
The challenge is in the longevity, not just the finish line. It’s about keeping each other motivated and focused during the tricky night swims. It’s the hugs at the end of each hour knowing you’ve just ticked another hour off. It’s cheering each other on at 4am when tiredness feels inevitable and the sun just starts to rise. It’s being huddled around the fire sharing stories and hot chocolate and dancing around to keep warm.
It’s knowing that you’re doing it all to raise money for swimming lessons for children with disabilities. It’s knowing that, one day, they might be able to take part in this challenge with their friends or family because of the efforts you are putting in to fundraise.
It’s knowing your are using the power of your swimming to change lives.
And that’s all pretty wonderful.
