Global Swimarathon

The Global Swimarathon is an annual event held in February each year to raise funds for the eradication of polio.

“So what do you have to do? It’s simple,come along and swim in our swimarathon, and ask people to sponsor you for doing so”.

The aim is to get as many people swimming at events around the world at Swimarathon events, and raise sponsorship for their efforts. All funds raised will go to Rotary International Polio Campaign and other charities via  normal club channels.

Let’s eradicate Polio together!

The fund raising effort in February raised $4,000, which together with $8,000 from the Gates Foundation will continue $12,000 to the End Polio Now Fund – enough to provide funds for 100,000 sips of polio vaccines.
