Rotary Swimarathon

In a truly herculean effort, Youth In Transition swam 171 lengths of the Stanmore Bay leisure centre pool in one hour. Megan Butler and Mark Butler swam the majority of the lengths, while Clifford Jones, Hannah Longley and Grayson Nipper failed to avoid being lapped by school children in the adjacent lane. It was a fun day and a great fundraiser for Youth in Transition and Hibiscus Coast Youth Centre. YIT received a very generous donation of four thousand dollars from the Swimarathon, presented by Brian Mullan of Rotary and local MP Mark Mitchell. Pictured above, receiving the enormous cheque are YIT members Tina Jones, Clifford Jones and Nigel Rigg.
