SPLASH Marathon fundraiser at NAC for Cancer Research

The annual SPLASH nine-hour marathon will take off again at the Noosa Aquatic Centre (NAC) on Saturday, August 27th, following last year's successful Noosa fundraiser for the  Children's Cancer Institute.  

Olympians will make their presence felt this year, with past and present stars about to hit town for the Splash 9 hour Marathon Team relay.  Thanks are due to Iain Kippen from the Noosa Swim Club who has pulled together an Olympian Team comprising :

- Regan Harrison- Olympics :  Athens 2004, Sydney 2004
- Adam Pine - Olympics :  Athens 2004, Sydney 2004
- Barry Prime (NAC Head Coach) - Olympics :  Munich 1972
- Suki Brownsden - Olympics :  Moscow 1980, LA 1984, Seoul 1988, Barcelona 1992
- Helen Slatter - Olympics :  Seoul 1988, Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996
- Debbie Gibson - Montreal 1976, Moscow 1980

These high achieving swim stars will be getting into the water, signing autographs and being interviewed on the day.  They will be joined by swimmers aged anything between six years and 60-something.      

Organiser Donna Frey says it is not too late to enter a team of ten swimmers and as it is a non competitive event you do not have to be the speedy sort of splasher.  You can even use a bit of help, such as kickboards, paddles, floaties, waterbelts, flippers etc.

All Noosa residents are invited to join in the celebrations.   Entry will be by gold coin donation, with all funds raised going to the Children's Cancer Institute of Australia.  For further information, please contact the NAC on 5448 0288.
