Cluj Swimathon 2016

July is the peak of summer and most people head for the beach to cool off from the sunrays. However, why not cool off by joining TEAM BLYTHSWOOD at the 2016 Swimathon Cluj and help raise funds for the Daniel Centre! We are looking for swimmers of all levels to come and swim on Saturday 2 July at „Universitas Swimming Complex” to raise awareness of the work that Blythswood Romania carries out to improve the lives of vulnerable families and individuals while providing a real hope and true purpose for a prosperous future. You can read more about our projects HERE.  


Swimathon Cluj is run by the  Cluj Community Foundation and opens up the possibility for local charities to promote their cause and raise funds through swimming.  


Blythswood Romania has two projects registered this year and we are looking for swimmers of all ages and abilities to join TEAM BLYTHSWOOD.  


We need 3 teams of up to 7 people to swim for 60 MINUTES. If you or your company would like to take part in the Swimathon, please contact John McKellar, Head of Donor Development
