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.
Swimathon is a civic initiative to raise awareness about and funds for community-based initiatives. This year the event cannot take place in a swimming pool because of COVID restrictions, so ambassadors and teams are doing all sorts of outdoor physical activities. I will do errands in the woods and wherever I go and will take pictures of my slow lifestyle adventures. Thus, I am offering 100 000 meters and wish to raise 300 000 HUF which is less than 1,000 USD or 1,000 euros. Why am I doing that? Because I believe in small changes and community initiatives and organizations can trigger that.
