Aquarena staff members Zoe Rowcroft, Emily Murphy and Emma Hancox (front) are gearing up for this weekend’s 24-hour swim to raise money for the Cancer Council.

Get your goggles ready because the Aquarena is calling on the community to join in their 24-hour swim to raise money for the Cancer Council.

The swim will take place this Friday, January 23 at 6pm and will go through to 6pm on Saturday.

The rules are very simple - you must have one person from your team swimming at all times, you can even wear floaties if you want.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor, Ian Carpenter, said the event was a fun way to get involved in raising money for a very worthy cause.

“Everyone has been touched by cancer in some way and we would really like the community to get behind this great event,” he said.

Teams can range from one to 20 people and entry fee is $20 per person with all money going to the Cancer Council.

The Aquarena is also calling on all local businesses to make a donation to the event.

You can go and support the swimmers during the swim with a gold coin donation.

For more information about how you can get involved, contact Emma Hancox at the Aquarena on (08)9921 8844.
