Our aim

One million people swimming.
All on the same day.*
All over the world.
Raising funds for nets.

Your participation

Please swim! Alone, with friends, as a group, as a club, as a company. In a pool, in the sea. One length of the pool, a km, more. You decide. It's your swim so you choose with whom, how, where (and when). Be part of an attempt at a million swimming!

About World Swim

In 2005, the first World Swim Against Malaria achieved 250,000 people swimming in 130 countries. We raised $1.3m. 100% bought nets to protect some 500,000 people.
