World Swim Against Malaria

The next big swim is in June, but you can swim at anytime!
Marlins do our annual Swim Against Malaria during a week in April or May.
If you can swim on the day, we hope it will be special knowing you are swimming on the same day as hundreds of thousands of people all over the world.

Against Malaria (Parent body of World Swim Against Malaria)
Our aim: Millions participating Malaria is fixable. A US$5 bed-net is the key. Why are we doing this? To encourage lots of people to raise funds to buy long-lasting insecticidal (mosquito) nets.
If we do this, we will put hundreds of thousands or even millions of bed-nets over heads and beds to help protect people. We aim to achieve 3 million people 'doing something' in the fight against malaria, be it swimming, running, fasting, baking cakes, or whatever someone wants to do.
Why 3 million? Because it mirrors the number of people that die each year from malaria.

MS Mega Swim - Malvern Marlins
Our team takes part in the Fitzroy 24 Hour Mega Swim each February to raise funds for people affected by Multiple Sclerosis. MS is the most common disease of the central nervous system affecting over 20,000 Australians. Please go to our team page to either join up or sponsor us.
