Go to great lengths
Swim It is now over for 2020 - thank you so much for your support. If you are interested in joining us for 2021 or signing up to another swim for Macmillan Cancer Support click here.
Swim a virtual challenge at your own pace, in your own time, at your pool and help people living with cancer.
Cancer is not going anywhere, and Macmillan is needed now more than ever. We are working tirelessly to ensure people with cancer get the vital support they need right now. We can’t do it alone. We need your support. Your fundraising will help us to create new services, adapt old ones and speak up on behalf of people living with cancer.
Choose your distance
Swim Loch Ness without the monsters
Swim one mile which is the width of Loch Ness in a pool near you. It’s the equivalent of 65 lengths in a 25m pool. Do it in one go or over a few goes.
Swim the Thames in nice, clean water
Swim 455 lengths in the safety of your own 25m pool. That’s the equivalent of swimming 7 miles from Canary Wharf to Battersea Power Station. Do it over days, weeks or months.
Swim the Channel one length at a time
Swim 22 miles in your own time, in a pool near you. Do it over weeks or months, and we’ll support you as you go the distance.
Swim Unlimited: pick your own distance
You decide how far you want to swim, and what it means to you as a virtual distance. Make it personal: your local river, the height of a building, your school run or escape from Alcatraz.
Over 1,200 supporters have taken part in their own Swim It challenge and raised over £240,000.
