Making Waves for Better Lives

Swim For Hope is an annual charity swim event that debuted in 2011 at SAFRA Tampines. By 2014, the well-received fundraiser was expanded to five SAFRA clubs; and then extended to three days the following year. A parent-and-child category was introduced in 2016, encouraging more children below the age of 13 to join and do their part for charity.

With the launch of our new Junior Category (suitable for children between ages 6 to 12 years old) this year, we aim to encourage more children to kick-start a healthy lifestyle while promoting the spirit of giving from a young age.

There is no minimum number of laps required and participants are encouraged to swim according to their best capability. Swimmers may rest anytime during the two-hour time slot as they deem fit.
