I am excited to be swimming my second 8 Mile Midmar in support of The Friends of Swimmers Trust. Your support of me and this worthy charity is hugely appreciated.
Some more about The Friends of Swimmers Trust:
1: The Trust promotes and provides water safety workshops to communities within KZN.
Several learn to swim programs are in place namely LIv-Village School program (Verulam), Maidstone Primary School (Tongaat) and Imbalito Hope College for children with autism (Tongaat).
Our mission is to make a positive impact on reducing death by drowning in KZN.
2: SA Swimming cannot financially support our swimmers and the Trust helps fund South African Elite swimmers with their travel costs to international competitions.
3: The Trust identifies talented swimmers within its programs by offering long term guidance and support which can allow them a career in professional sport.
