Swim Towards Wellness

Toby Flemming Swim Towards Wellness – Saturday 18th May 2019

A huge thank you to everyone who supported this event


This is not a race but a supportive swim.

We are catering for up to 50 swimmers this year but hope to make the event bigger as we move forward.  Please note we are hopeful for all swimmers to arrive at the finish line together. Some swimmers may need to self handicap to achieve this.

Course distance: 4 Kilometres.


Entry fee: This is a free event – instead of an entry fee we are requesting DONATIONS to go to SWIM TOWARDS WELLNESS via South Curl Curl SLSC.  Funds raised will be directed to various Wellness and Mental Health Providers and can be made via our Payment Gateway.
