Why take part in Swim22?
We're swimming the distance of the English Channel to raise funds so we can support everybody living with diabetes who needs us.
With three distances to choose from, you can take the challenge at your own pace, in your own local pool or the open water, over three months - individually or as a team:
- 11 miles: ‘The Half’ - half the distance to France, still an impressive feat.
- 22 miles: ‘The Full’ - the distance of the English Channel, our most popular choice.
- 44 miles: ‘The Double’ - to France and back, for the more adventurous.
Whichever distance you choose, there’s no better feeling than diving into a challenge you’ll love, knowing each length you complete will lead to a healthier you and a better future for people affected by diabetes. And you can even earn amazing rewards along the way – like the exclusive t-shirt, medal and Swim22 towel!
We’ll be there to support you every stroke, length and mile of the way. If you want to find out more about the challenge, or hear from those taking part - join our Facebook group. It’s open to everyone.
