Zoggs to partner the Aspire Channel Swim 2015

Swimwear brand Zoggs has renewed its support of the Aspire Channel Swim, announcing that it will be its official corporate partner for the sixth year running.

The Aspire Channel Swim is a challenge to swim the length of the English Channel over a period of 12 weeks in your local swimming pool to raise money to support people with spinal cord injury. This year the challenge will take place between 14 September and 7 December 2015. There is no cost to enter apart from the normal swim entry fee at your leisure centre.
Now in its sixteenth year, £ 4.5million has been raised for Aspire since 1999. This year, with the support of Zoggs promoting the swim in leisure centres nationwide, it is hoped even more will be raised for this fantastic cause.
David Annand, UK marketing and PR manager at Zoggs said: “This is our sixth consecutive year of partnering the Aspire Channel Swim, demonstrating our commitment to promoting a more active and healthy lifestyle by encouraging everyone – whatever age, sex or ability – to take part in this challenge, to feel the benefits of regular swimming and, at the same time, raise much needed funds for those living with Spinal Cord Injury.”
