JOIN OUR VIRTUAL SWIM
As many of you know we held our virtual sponsored walk in May and it was a great success and raised 610 euros. We’ve been thinking of other ‘virtual’ events to raise much needed monies for the charity, as there are still many people who are isolating or would feel uncomfortable and vulnerable if they were asked to partake in events mixing with a number of people.
With the ever increasing temperatures and all the swimming pools and the sea being the temperature of bath water at present, we thought it would be a great idea to apply the same principles to a virtual sponsored swim.
For the walk we chose a distance of around 5 km, but for the swim we will leave it up to you . I will go for 2 km – I have a 10 meter pool that will be approximately 200 lengths which over the week will be approximately 28 lengths a day. So the idea is that we all complete a distance we are comfortable with, however we can, in the way that we want and feel safe.
We again plan to have a 5 euro entrance fee – donated via Go Get Funding – link below – and all proceeds will go to the care of clients in the Area with Cancer through our Lynwen´s Nursing and Advisor Team.
The idea is that you could download an app, wear a fit bit, or just work out the distance based on the size of your pool and start swimming from the 24th – 30th August.
Once you have done your swim then you let us know – It would be great to have pictures or stories of how you achieved it. We will then send you your completed certificate for the event.
Not only will you be doing a great thing for the charity if you take part but also for yourselves. Swimming is a good all-round activity because it:
- keeps your heart rate up but takes some of the impact stress off your body
- builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness
- helps maintain a healthy weight, healthy heart and lungs
- tones muscles and builds strength
- provides an all-over body workout, as nearly all of your muscles are use during swimming.
So go for it and give it your all.
We will collate a collage of everyones data ( who are happy to share ) after the swim.
Once you register your 5 Euros go to the following link GOGETFUNDING.COM/CANCER-CARE-JAVEA-2 and please make a note on there that it is for the Sponsored Swim we will be waiting eagerly for your completion stories.
We are looking forwards to hearing everyones stories.
