Swim for Hope

 

SWIM FOR HOPE 2015

Open water swimmers come together for yet another group attempt of the most breath-taking swim in the world, to raise funds for The Little Fighters Cancer Trust, “The VOICE of Childhood Cancer Awareness, The HANDS of Childhood Cancer Support”  This fully registered NPO (089-376) and PBO (930037657) offers varied support to Children with Cancer and their Families in paediatric oncology hospital wards, individual family homes as well as places of safety which houses children with cancer.

The spectacular and extreme 8km ocean swim stretches from Diaz Beach on the western side of Cape Point, to Buffels Bay on the Eastern side, and takes swimmers through the point where the two oceans (Atlantic and Indian) meet.  Swimmers will go on standby on 15 March 2015 and the swim will called 24 hours prior to the first suitable day.

South African musician and veteran marathon swimmer Carina Bruwer, whose dramatic rounding of Cape Point for LFCT in 2013 aided in raising an amount of R17,500 as well as extensive media coverage and awareness, and the Little Fighters Cancer Trust are hoping for this to become an annual event. In 2014, 15 incredible open water swimmers took part, and raised R116 800.00 for Little Fighters.

All moneys raised will go towards the Little Fighters Cancer Trust’s BAG OF HOPE Project. A BAG OF HOPE provides essentials for both the Child with Cancer and his/her mother or bedside care-giver, with items such as toiletries, pyjamas, non-perishable food, educational toys, blankets and sanitary products, making a challenging and prolonged hospital stay, just a bit more comfortable. LFCT is operational in 14 main paediatric oncology treatment centres throughout South Africa, including the Western Cape, Gauteng, Kwazulu Natal, Eastern Cape and Free State.

PLEASE HONOUR OUR AMAZINGLY BRAVE SWIMMERS BY SUPPORTING SWIM FOR HOPE! Each donation is worth gold.
