Swim for Hope is a 12-hour continuous swim relay where participants collect individual
and corporate pledges.
These young swimmers – with ages ranging from 6 to
18 years old – are members of 11 Swimming Newfoundland and Labrador clubs who,
along with Community Challenge swimmers, participated in the annual Swim for Hope in communities from St. John’s to Labrador City. Since the event began
over $2 million dollars have been raised.
funds raised are shared between the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation
and the participating clubs of Swimming Newfoundland and Labrador. Proceeds
received by the clubs of Swimming Newfoundland and Labrador will be directed
towards supporting competitive swimming in our province.
The Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer
Care Foundation is a registered charity raising funds to support the Dr. H.
Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre in St. John’s, Cancer Centres located in Gander,
Grand Falls-Windsor and Corner Brook along with chemotherapy delivery sites
around Newfoundland and Labrador.
Both organizations extend their sincerest thanks to Subway
for sponsoring this event, as well as the Swim for Hope coordinators, volunteers, parents,
coaches, donors and swimmers who make Swim for Hope such a success each year.
