Rise to the challenge

It's just to the end and back

Anyone and everyone can help us to support people affected by spinal cord injury. It doesn’t matter how you swim, it doesn’t matter where you swim. The important thing is that you pull up your costume, pull on your swimming cap and get in the water! Last year our Channel swimmers raised over £580,000! This year we want you to help us do even better. Come on, dive in. The only thing in your way is water.
