Our athletes are taking on a huge swimming challenge to raise funds to complete our set of 6 new starting blocks!

by Holly Parkin in Dorchester, England, United Kingdom

Swimmers from all squads in West Dorset Swimming Club are taking on the challenge of swimming the English Channel, not once, but twice to raise funds to support the Club's fundraising efforts to upgrade their starting blocks.  The starting blocks are an essential part of both training and racing for our athletes at all swimming levels.  


This sponsorship opportunity means that the swimmers will be covering the whopping 42 miles, virtually, within the confines of their home pool at 1610 Dorchester - this equates to a massive 2,600 lengths of the pool.  

Each swimmer will pledge a distance that will challenge themselves, and by the end of our 12 hour time target, the Team will be (virtual!) TWO WAY ENGLISH CHANNEL SWIMMERS!!!

This will be a HUGE challenge, especially for some younger swimmers, who are still learning and train in the small pool and do not have the experience of competing or training in the 25m pool. For our competitive athletes, this challenge, at the end of an extremely busy and successful season and this final effort will push their already tired bodies to the maximum to raise these very much needed funds.  

So please do get behind our awesome athletes and support them on their challenge, it's quick and easy to do pressing the RED DONATE BUTTON and by leaving them your donation along with a good luck message, will definitely spur them on!  

Thank you for your support!
