You might be thinking ORIGIN and you're not that far off the mark! "SWIM4KIDS" 2011 is back for the 5th year in a row Oct 21-22 and is hoping to break the magic mark of $500,000.00 for the Royal Children's Hospital.
Swim4kids - www.swim4kids.com.au - the brainchild of "STU" Stuart Jeffries along with his 2 idiot mates "CAMPO" (Paul Campion) of Radio fame and "Bluey" (John Braid) of Ranga fame, once again will brave the unforgiving waters of Moreton Bay along with another 150 nutcases out for a good time and swim from Breakfast Creek to Tangalooma Island resort in there custom built SHARK CAGE and word is, the sharks are happy the swimmers who are quite a rowdy bunch have to stay in the cage.
Don’t worry if you can’t swim. In the cage this year, boogie boards, a couple of footies and we are even whacking up a basketball hoop, or you can just sit up the back of the cage and let it tow you along.
All monies raised go to The Royal Children's Hospital, last year the money was spent on the burns unit and this year it will once again go to vital equipment.
STUEY, BLUEY AND CAMPO would love to get there Noggins on TV, THE PAPERS, RADIO, they will even settle for someone yelling out their names through a megaphone just to tell the story of 3 knockabout lads who love a beer and a few laughs and the ADVENTURE of what is SWIM4KIDS.
CORPORATE TEAM "COUEE" www.couee.com.au leads the way in the Fundraising Stakes with over $10,000.00 already in the kitty and is putting out the challenge to other corporate teams and businesses to better it. "COUEE" has said no one will beat us this year so Na Na na na Na.
So help us out, media people, and spread the good news...cos it's a bloody fine story which we can make sound bigger than BEN HUR. We would love the Media to come out and see what we do, jump in and ride the rapids
To get the TRUTH and nothing but...
SWIM4KIDS 2011 - Don't miss the boat!
