Make a big splash and join the Rethink Mental Illness team for Swim Serpentine 2019.
If you're a keen swimmer or fancy trying out a swim challenge for the first time, this is the perfect event for you. You can also choose to do either a one-mile or two-mile swim as part of the superb Swim Serpentine festival.
All the action takes place in and around the beautiful Serpentine lake in London’s Hyde Park, which was the venue for the open water swimming competition at the 2012 Olympic Games.
So why not take the plunge and follow in the footsteps of the glorious Olympians? Your tremendous efforts will leave you with a wonderful sense of achievement and help to improve the lives of people severely affected by mental illness.
To take part, all you need to do is either:
One-mile event – provide your details, pay a £20 booking fee and pledge to raise at least £200 (not including Gift Aid).
Two-mile event – provide your details, pay a £25 booking fee and pledge to raise at least £250 (not including Gift Aid).
In return expect to receive:
- lots of training and fundraising advice
- a free running/cycling top
- We will provide information and support in the run up to your event
- Have a look at our top tips page to get your fundraising started
