On June 17th SwimPath's own Head Coach Jez Birds and Pro Star Jemma Lowe are set to join in the 'Longest Swim on the Longest Day' charity event in support of the Raj K Soni legacy fund, designed to support and inspire local young people through sport and music.
The aim of the day is to swim as many lengths as possible at the Portishead open air pool, with a mixture of individual swims, relay races and group sessions, and to total as much support as possible for this great cause.
Jez's United Bristol Swimming Club will also take part in the days event and will form some early morning training sessions as well as joining in the relay races during the evening.
You can catch Jez and Jemma taking part in the main relay event of the evening at 5pm where a team of ex Olympic and International swimmers (with Olympic Silver medallist Paul Palmer joining Jez, Jemma, Andy Clayton and Simon Handley) will pit their fading endurance levels (Jemma aside obviously) against the younger blood of United Bristol's Youth and Senior members.
SwimPath are proud to be a part of this great fund and would love your support in raising as much money as possible for this worthwhile cause. To donate please visit the United Bristol fundraising page here and then why not head on down to the pool where there will be refreshments and food served to add to the great community atmosphere.
We wish Jez and Jemma luck against the UBSC younglings (who have toppled the mighty Internationals 2 years on the trot!!!) as well as the many SwimPath sponsored swimmers who will be involved also!
