Waves of Hope Swimathon 2014

Inspiring Lives As One
Waves of Hope Swimathon 2014 is a project by the Rotaract Club of the National University of Singapore. With the theme of Inspiring Lives as One, we hope to have people from all walks of life coming together through swimming to help the underprivileged both in monetary and social ways.

Attracting a total of 474 swimmers and raising S$29, 821.16 last year, Waves of Hope Swimathon returns this coming 6 September 2014, at Yio Chu Kang Swimming Complex!

Be one of our 600 swimmers as we swim to complete a total of 8000 laps and raise a sum of S$35,000 for our beneficiary this year!

*Timings for each Wave are subjected to changes on actual event day

About our Beneficiary:
SportCares, has a simple mission: To use sport as a force for social good by empowering people in need. We were set up by the Singapore Sports Council in late 2012 as a foundation and a movement to help people live better through sports. We deliver sports programming interwoven with values and character development, educational support and life-skills training. By offering a safe environment with role-model coaches and volunteers, we help bridge communities by linking underprivileged beneficiaries with passionate volunteers and community-spirited donors. As a Movement, we support and encourage the development of independent initiatives to empower people, enhance social inclusion and bring communities and individuals closer together.

SportCares Foundation exists as a fund under The Community Foundation of Singapore (CFS), a charitable philanthropic organisation bridging donors to community needs. It is a registered charity with Institutions of a Public Character status. All donations to SportCares Foundation will be channelled to CFS.

Things to Note:
  • All swimmers are required to print and sign the indemnity form in order to take part in the event.
  • All swimmers will be required to report and register at the event at least 45 minutes before their allocated time slot so as to have sufficient time to change and warm up.
  • Swimmers participating in the Infinity Swim will be required to report at 1.45pm at the grandstand for a briefing conducted by the dispatcher. Swimmers will be informed of their designated lanes and the method of tracking the number of laps swam.
  • All funds raised through the swimathon shall not be refundable. Funds raised will proceed to our beneficiary, SportCares.
