Bexley pool is managed by the YMCA. One of the regular lappies there had the idea pf helping raise the profile of the pool as a community asset, and garnering support for its re-development by having  a Swimathon and raising money for local causes. The YMCA has taken up the initiative and on SunMarch 11, there'll be a national Swimathon at 100 pools across Australia.

It didn't take much thinking for me to dive in to this one!

If you feel inclined to throw in some sponsorship - even just a dollar or two, you can do it on-line here:

My sponsorship page.

I've pledged to swim 1000 metres (1 km, or 20x50 m laps, or lengths, if you prefer to say that!)

Hopefully it will have the added benefit of attracting some local publicity, and help people appreciate that the pool is a hugely valuable asset to our community!


  1. Wow, what a great cause! And such a big one as well, across a hundred pools- that sounds amazing. Hope there are more of these in the future.
