Last month, Forest Pupil, Melika Pakravan took part and successfully completed the Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie Swimathon.
Swimathon is the world’s largest annual fundraising swim and is at the heart of many swimming pools’ annual recruitment campaigns. More than 45% of Swimathon participants increase their training in preparation for the event, leading to increased visits for pools as well as a boost to the health and fitness of the swimmers taking part.
Melika trained and completed her swimathon at Forest School’s Sylvestrian Swimming Pool and has so far raised almost £1,000 for the aforementioned charities by swimming an epic 5km!
Well done Melika.
