Swimathon at Exe Valley Leisure Centre

Posted on: 9 February 2015

Exe Valley Leisure Centre limbers up to take on the world’s biggest fundraising swim

Exe Valley Leisure Centre has, for the first time, joined in to take on the Swimathon challenge and encourage swimmers in the Mid Devon area to take on Swimathon distance challenges as a team or as an individual to raise funds for Marie Curie.

Held over the weekend of 17-19 April, Swimathon 2015 is expecting thousands of swimmers to take on the challenge and go that extra length to help support Marie Curie provide care for people with terminal illnesses across the UK, with hours of health care and professionals to support themselves and their families go through those tough times.

After a year away, Marie Curie is returning as charity partner for Swimathon 2015 with the aim to reach even higher fundraising numbers than in the past. The involvement of Marie Curie with Swimathon goes back to 2007, reaching the incredible sum of over nine million pounds raised from then until 2013.

Registration is now open. Visit Swimathon.org to enter, or call 0845 36 700 36 for more information.

Martin Palk, Pool Manager adds: “Swimathon is a fantastic way to bring our community together, to raise money for charity, and provides a great challenge to work towards for our dedicated swimmers.”
