How do I take part?
You can register here and start your swim for Diabetes UK. When you have registered, we will send you information to help you get started as well as a Swim22 swimming cap. You will have access to a website, only for Swim22 registrants, where you can record your lengths, with prizes to be won for passing fundraising and distance milestones.
Note the length of your local pool and log the number of lengths you complete or simply put in the distance into the Swim22 website. You can also register with friends, colleagues or as a school and check your progress against other swimmers. You have until 22 May to complete this swim for Diabetes UK, and we will be on hand to help you swim the distance of the English Channel and raise vital funds for people with diabetes.
Once you’ve dived in, don’t forget to let everyone know how you’re doing. Share you photos and experiences of Swim22 on social media with your friends, families and us. Use #swim22 and join the Swim22 community on Twitter, a great source of advice, tips and support from your fellow swimmers.
