It’s March Swimming Challenge Time – Get Those Speedo’s Out……

Out of the frying pan and into the fire!

No sooner is the Spinathon over, our bottoms are still glowing red, the wheels on the bikes are still steaming and the Compound’s Brufen consumption has gone through the roof – then it is March, (well tomorrow anyway).cartoon-swimmer-child-thumb8775022

We all know what March is – yeap, it is Swimming Challenge Month. The month where those Speedo’s come out of hiding, people decide how far they would like to swim in total over the month of March, get some sponsors, get wet and raise some money for Tommy’s.

Don’t forget – the Swimming Challenge is not just for people here in Saudi, anybody anywhere in the world can do this – just as long as there is a swimming pool!!! No excuses now folks….


It’s open to the kids as well – they choose how far they would like to swim, get their sponsorship and away they go.

You have the whole of March to do this, there are no set events – it is up to each individual person to set their target and go swimming.


The official Tommy’s Sponsor form can be found here – so let’s get swimming!

I am delighted to say that the Salwa Amateur Swimming Club have come on board with the March Swimming Challenge and are encouraging all their members to take part.

So, come on folks – get wet, get fit, have fun and raise money for Tommy’s……

Don’t forget to donate, this is all about raising money for Tommy’s
