Most of you would know where you could find the Eastern Respite team last Sunday morning, that’s right a large group of us were in the pool at the UNSW Fitness and Aquatic Centre, participating in the Swimathon.
With just over $5500 raised by this event going towards the YMCA’s Y Swimability program, which will assist the clients that Eastern Respite support to feel confident and safe around the water. They will be given the opportunity to learn lifesaving skills that are much needed in a country where the water is such a big part of our culture.
Pictured below, the swim team spent just over an hour swimming laps as part of the Swimathon, along with family members, clients and their families. The team did an amazing job, reaching their swimming targets and swimming over 12km in total. We are very proud of the team.
