There is just two weeks to go before the Jeffreys Bay community takes to the water in the Training Edge gym to raise funds for the global war against polio and to set a world record at the same time.
Each swimmer will need to complete 100 meters (or 8 laps of the Gym pool) to become part of the attempt to set a world record for the most number of people swimming 100m in one hour.
The swimathon, which is organised by Rotary will take place all over the world between 2 -3 pm (South African time).
The Training Edge Gym has donated 6 prizes which will be used in a lucky draw for all those swimmers who take part in the event.
If any of the winners are already members at the gym, they could win 6 group personal training sessions, plus an assessment , total valued at R 1000.
Any winners that are not gym members, will receive a 2 week gym membership, plus 3 group personal training sessions.
All participants will pay a R 50 entry fee which will go towards the fight to eradicate polio.
Entry forms are available at Training Edge gym or swimmers can enter on the day at the gym from 1 pm.
