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!
