Moonlight Swimathon for Ryedale Special Families


12:00am 29th January 2012

Malton based charity Ryedale Special Families is organising a through-the-night Swimathon, which they hope to attract 400 people to take part in.

They're planning to swim the length of the River Derwent to raise funds for the on-going services of the charity.

The event will take place on Saturday 24th March 2012 at Ryedale Swimming Pool in Pickering and will run from 4.00pm on Saturday afternoon, right through to 4.00am in the early hours of Sunday 25th March 2012.

The swim will take the form of a relay with each swimmer turning up at their allotted time and completing as few or as many lengths as they are able to do, thereby contributing to the overall target of 4,608 lengths. The pool will be split into 4 lanes and controlled with 15 minute time-slots which will be pre-sold for £10.00 per slot.

A medal will be presented to every swimmer taking part and in addition, they will receive a free swimming voucher, donated by Ryedale Swimming Pool.

Full entry details and sponsor forms are available from Rob Davies, Funding Co-ordinator for Ryedale Special Families, by emailing robdavies@ryedalespecialfamilies.org.uk or by calling 01653 699000 or 0791 923 5962.
