Dear Friends, Colleagues in February 2019 at the world’s largest Open Water swimming event, The Midmar Mile I will be swimming all 8 events as part of the 8-Mile Charity Initiative.
Every year, the 8-Mile Club year raises a significant amount (in 2018: R3.5 Million) for a variety of deserving charities. These charities are both small and large and include a diverse selection from conservation, sea rescue, to wildlife, to cancer and disabilities.
