Swimming Australia

“Swimming is in the blood in Australia. (Better than malaria being there.)

Put that together with a fundamental humanitarian cause, a first ever truly global swim and 100% of the money going to buy mosquito nets and you can count us in.

We will do our utmost to encourage many many Australians to support and participate in World Swim Against Malaria.

We have close contact with swimming clubs throughout Australia. 5,000 will not be difficult. It’ll be many more.

Australians, come on, let’s sign up and get the greatest swimming nation on earth behind this.”

Glenn Tasker, CEO, and the team at Swimming Australia
