Swim Ireland recently launched their 2015 “Swim for a Mile” challenge. The project, which was initiated in 2014, challenges members of the public to compete in national events to swim a mile. Swim Ireland will provide a free training programme, support, advice and motivation for all those wanting to take on the challenge, details of which are on the Swim Ireland dedicated website at http://www.swimforamile.com/ with proceeds going to the Simon Community.
The 2015 event promises to be bigger and better than last year. Swim Ireland have teamed up with Ireland Active to get pools all across Ireland participating and encouraging people to take the plunge and swim a mile. One of pools participating is the Killarney Sports and Leisure Centre so there is no excuse!
Anyone over sixteen can take part and the big day is Friday the 22nd of May, 2015.
