The Alfred Foundation is pleased to announce a new partnership with Swimming Victoria.
To kick-off the partnership, Swimming Victoria is launching a new event - "Swimtember" - which will see Victorians perform their own swimming challenge during September for a donation to support The Alfred's 2012 Father's Day Appeal.
Swimming Victoria chief executive officer, Warwick Waters, says he is delighted by the partnership and believes it will provide long lasting benefits to the people of Victoria and the sport of swimming.
"Thanks to the partnership, Victorians will be offered new and exciting ways to get involved with swimming and enjoy its many health benefits while raising funds for The Alfred," Warwick said.
"Swimming-related health tips from The Alfred's highly regarded specialists will be also made available to members of Swimming Victoria and the wider Victorian community."
Swimming Victoria encourages Victorians to ‘Dive in and help The Alfred save lives' by registering to become involved in Swimtember.
