DVE Aquatic’s 50th 24 Hour Swimathon 2018

Community Fund Raiser for Berry Street Victoria and an opportunity to Swim 25km

DVE Aquatic is conducting it’s 50th annual 24 Hour Swimathon on the 20th / 21st April at the WaterMarc pool, Greensborough.

The Swimathon is conducted over a 24 hour period and swimmers may turn up at any time, day or night and swim at any time during the 24 hours for as long as they want. Swimmers may enter and leave the pool as often as they want during the 24 hours. All laps swum will be included towards their total.

The Swimathon will start at 7pm on Friday 20th April and finish 24 hours later at 7pm on Saturday 21st April.

The main objective of the Swimathon is to raise money for Berry Street Victoria and for DVE Aquatic Club. 50% of funds raised will be donated to Berry Street Victoria and goes towards the much needed family support services offered in our local community. Berry Street Victoria has been protecting children and strengthening families in Victoria for over 130 years and exists to increase life chances and choices for children and young people who are at risk, or who have experienced the trauma of family violence, child abuse and neglect. Every year they help over 5,000 children, young people and families. For more information visit www.berrystreet.org.au.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the Swimathon, come along and do 1 lap or 1000 laps, they all count.

Certificates of achievement will be given to swimmers.

As this is the 50th year of the Swimathon all current members of DVE Aquatic and all previous DVE Aquatic, Diamond Valley and Eltham Swimming Clubs are invited and encouraged to attend this significant anniversary. Even if you don’t have a swim come and renew old acquaintances, sign the 50th Swimathon Anniversary Register, maybe sponsor a swimmer, have a cup of coffee and have a chat about old times.
