Already got your own place?

If you've already acquired a place in an event, join our team as an Own Place swimmer. There's no minimum fundraising target, just raise as much as you can.

Planning your own event?

You can organise a swim at local swimming pool or do an outdoor swim. Why not get a team together to cover a set distance? You can use your event to raise awareness about one of our campaigns, such as the dangerous journeys many refugees have to make, or how little time we have left to stop climate change.
