Welcome to The Swimathon Foundation – the charity behind the world’s biggest fundraising swimming event, Swimathon.
Every year, Swimathon brings together swimmers in over 600 local pools across the nation to challenge their swimming abilities and raise funds for charity. In past years our swimmers have raised over £40 million for such well known charities as Marie Curie Cancer Care, Sport Relief, Macmillan Cancer Support, NSPCC, The British Heart Foundation and The Prince’s Trust.
The Swimathon Foundation also supports smaller organisations that are involved with local swimming projects through its Community Grants scheme. In the past year a variety of initiatives, including swimming programmes for those with special needs, participation schemes by youth groups, clubs for the elderly, swimming clubs and disability groups have all benefitted from its support.
