30th Annual Swimathon for Victoria Hospice

Event Date: 
Saturday, October 10, 2015

Victoria Hospice is proud to announce the 30th Annual Swimathon!
October 10 - 17, 2015


Everyone is invited to join in the fun. Since 1986, Swimathon has been an important and much loved Hospice event.

This year Swimathon will kick off on World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, October 10th 2015. We can't think of a better way to honour a Victoria Hospice tradition and celebrate World Hospice Day.

How it works: Swimmers of all ages and abilities are invited to raise funds by collecting pledges for swimming laps and being active. Between October 10 - 17th 2015 participans will be able to visit Saanich Commonwealth Place or Recreation Oak Bay free of charge to swim your laps or just take a dip. Pools will be open to paticipants during regular swim times.
