Balmoral - Swim for Cancer 2018, 7am - 1pm, From $15

Balmoral - Swim for Cancer 2018, 7am - 1pm, From $15

The Balmoral Swim for Cancer is a family-friendly open water, charity event raising funds for the Children’s Cancer Institute. It is a unique event as it is one of the few swims held within the safety and beauty of Sydney Harbour. A great event for all comers.

This year, “the 27th swim” is being held on Sunday 18 March 2018.

There are numerous events on the day:

  • 1 km main event (at 10am)
  • NEW 5km swim starting at 7am
  • School’s Relay Challenge (4 x 250m)
  • Corporate Team Challenge
  • Junior Swim – under 12s (250m)
  • Dashes for Glory – Anita Comelli Trophy

The swim is organised completely by volunteers, most of whom are members of the Balmoral Beach Club. However, the entire local community gets behind the event to make it happen. Mosman Council, HMAS Penguin and the Balmoral Sea Scouts all lend a hand and the event is also fortunate to have the support of a generous group of sponsors; Allianz (Platinum), Medlab (Silver) Audi Mosman (Gold), URM(Gold), Edney Ryan (Bronze), Jeckra (Bronze) Raine and Horne Mosman (Bronze), Mortgage Choice (Bronze) and oceanswims.com (Supporter).

Children’s Cancer Institute is the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to curing childhood cancer, research into the causes, better treatment, prevention, and cure of childhood cancer.

Every one of our supporters makes a difference to a child in need. It’s because of our passionate and dedicated supporters in our local communities that we are able to do our research to one day cure childhood cancer.

200m Junior swim (age under 12yrs) : Starts at 9:45am, registration on-line at Oceanswims or on the day before 9am, entry fee $15
