Welcome to the Swimathon Foundation
- Swimathon is the world’s biggest fundraising swimming event.
- It takes place every April in hundreds of pools across the UK.
- Now in its 26th year, more than half a million swimmers have taken part - swimming the equivalent of 25 times around the world and raising over £36 million for charity.
- The latest event inspired 20,000 people to dive into 515 pools, to raise an astonishing £2 million.
The event motivates thousands of people each year to jump into the water and continue to swim regularly.
Each year, Swimathon raises funds for a nominated charity - which has included Macmillan Cancer support, NSPCC, The British Heart Foundation, The Prince’s Trust and, most recently, Marie Curie Cancer Care - and the Swimathon Foundation.
