Welcome to the website of Swimathon! Swimathon is a four-week community fundraising campaign culminating in a community event that, this year, will NOT be held in and out of water in a pool due to the pandemic situation, but ON SOLID GROUND. During the campaign fundraising “ambassadors”, including me, are inviting you to be part of an exciting initiative and support a good cause. In addition to taking on a four-week, personal challenge in a sport activity of choice, targeting a minimum distance (see categories below), we're also fundraising to help these programs turn into a reality.
My name is Krisztián Kállay, senior transplant physician at Central Hospital of Southern Pest (Saint László Hospital is Ferencváros). Our Démétér House is built for transplanted children and it is operating at full capacity all the time due to dramatically improved outcomes of the transplantation of leukemic children. My aim is to ask 1 million HUF to Démétér House as a Shark and preparing to cross Lake Balaton!
