Island Charity prepares for 11th record year
LOCALLY founded charity, the Island Charity Swim, is preparing for its eleventh year of fundraising for the region’s two special schools, at Currimundi and Nambour as many swim teams begin training.
The annual Island Charity Swim is an 11km open ocean swim and each year approximately 100 participants complete the course over several hours from Mudjimba beach, around Old Woman Island, and back to shore at Mooloolaba beach.
To date the event has raised almost a million dollars for funding equipment and student programs and the 2011 event is expected to be another record year for participants.
Individuals and teams can take part and are invited to contact the volunteer committee now to register.
This year’s swim will take place on Saturday 13 August, leaving Mudjimba Beach in the early hours of the morning with most swimmers arriving at Mooloolaba Beach mid-morning to a big community welcome.
The fundraising goal for this year is $10,000 for special needs equipment for both schools.
