Inspiring and supporting young people seriously injured through sport

Get Busy Swimming!

We are delighted to announce that we’ll be holding our first cross channel swimming fundraiser on Sunday 31st July at Colwick Park in Nottingham to raise funds for our new hydrotherapy pool at The Get Busy Living Centre!

It’s 21 miles across the channel or 33,800 metres. We’ve expertly(!) calculated that an average person would swim 50 metres in a minute or 3,000 metres per hour and so could complete the crossing in around 12 hours.

We will begin our swim at 7am and aim to finish by 7pm and will be joined by Foundation ambassadors, beneficiaries, staff and supporters and we’d love you to join us!

All funds raised will go towards the hydrotherapy pool/extension (hence #getbusyswimming!) and it will be a great opportunity in a safe, supportive environment for those beneficiaries that want to get back in the water following their injuries to do so.

We’d love you to join us and swim a few metres (or miles!) or just cheer us on and have a drink in the sunshine in July, please email for more info and to sign up either individually or as a team.

Please share this with friends, family, colleagues, on your social media channels - the more the merrier!
