The team donned their goggles and swam for a total of 53 minutes straight, taking it in turns until the clock ran out. The swim took place in relay fashion, taking it in turns to do 50 metres at a time. When the final whistle blew, the group managed a total of 53 lengths.
The Swimathon is an annual fundraiser, aiming to support charities within the community. It’s raised over £630,000 for a variety of causes since it began in 1988.
Fundraising is still open for the event. Please see our fundraising account for more details - https://www.gofundme.com/GTHStarfish
