YMCA Swimathon 2018
The funds raised in the 2017 YMCA Swimathon, held in 60 pools around Australia in March, totalled $234,103.59.
In the past six years, YMCA Swimathon has raised over $1.43 million predominantly to support people with disabilities to enjoy and be safe around water.
The event is currently being reviewed and will not run in 2018. YMCA would like to thank everyone who has swum, raised funds, donated, or supported this event.
"Swimming not only gives people with disability vital water safety skills but also increases their confidence which helps them to achieve their goals" - 2017 National Ambassador and Paralympian Prue Watt, OAM said.
