Laps for Life: Get involved ReachOut fundraiser

ReachOut is hosting a fundraiser in March this year - sign up here now to get involved. 

 

Question for you: Do you like swimming? I love the calm feeling of being under water, and being in the rhythm.  Tell us how you feel about swimming in the replies. 

 

The month-long event we're running is called Laps For Life, and is all about getting in the water, and swimming whatever you can to raise money and save lives. 

 

All you need to do to get involved, is to set up an account, set your goal then dive on in!

 

Whether you're swimming in a pool or getting out into the ocean, log your laps as you swim through the month of March. You can swim as many times as you'd like to reach your goal. 

Swim as often as you like – and record your laps so that your supporters know how you’re progressing.

 

Raise money, form a team if you'd like - and have fun! 

 

Swimming is a great way to get away from the constant pressures of life, and focus on your breathe and your body. 

 

Let us know if you've decided to get involved in the replies.

Absolutely love this! Can't wait to get involved Heart

Re: Laps for Life: Get involved ReachOut fundraiser

I'm so glad I stumbled across this thread! I was a competitive swimmer growing up and now (many years later) find it hard to get in the pool and do something that I once loved.

 

I've signed myself up and set a challenging but attainable goal of 20kms and am excited to see how this goes and actually get back in the pool. 

Re: Laps for Life: Get involved ReachOut fundraiser

Re: Laps for Life: Get involved ReachOut fundraiser

Just a quick update on my progress before I go for my 4th swim. After tonight I should be a quarter of the way to my distance goal, which I'm very happy about. It feels good to be back in the pool, even if I am much slower than I used to be. 

 

Very humbled by how well received my page was when I shared it on my facebook. More likes and positive comments than I could have imagined. The number of people who have donated already also blew my mind. It just goes to show more people care than what you may think Heart 

 

Excited for the rest of the month to see if I can push to swim further than I initially challenged myself too.

@Maddyw  This is so amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing. 
Already swam four times and half way to your goal??? You're putting me to shame- but also inspiring me Smiley Very Happy

 

So lovely to hear how supported you've been by friends and family. 

Please keep sharing with us how you go!

Hi there Laps for Life stars!

 

We are now in the last 11 days of our swimming challenge! How are you tracking with your laps?

 

Ian Thorpe has been an ambassador for the Laps for Life challenge, and earlier this week Ian was speaking with the media about his experience with depression and why he is supporting Laps for Life.
