TenFoot Swim 2019 Charity Sea Swim & Events Weekend
In 2017, a group from the communities of both Tenby and Saundersfoot came together to organise the very first 5km TenFoot Charity Sea Swim. Aptly named, because it starts in TENby and finishes in SaundersFOOT, the challenge is the brainchild of local fundraising committees responsible for fantastic local events like the New Year's Day Swim in Saundersfoot, who have a wealth of experience in fundraising events.
Chris and the team have brought together a group of individuals who have experience in not only being involved in the organising of similar events, but also a number of them have taken part in numerous national Ironman, triathlon and sea swim events. The committee wanted to organise something that would appeal to people as being exciting, challenging and also helping to raise awareness and money for charities, with the inaugural event helping the Rory Rogers Foundation (Saundersfoot), and the blood cancer charity, Bloodwise. After initial success, FBM Holidays joined in 2018 as Main Sponsors and were delighted in helping raise awareness for the event which raised over £23,000 for local charities, and will continue our sponsorship into 2019.
The 2019 5km swim is to be held on Saturday, July 13th and will be proudly sponsored by the team here at FBM Holidays once more. The swimmers will once again set off from Goscar Rock on Tenby’s North Beach, rounding Monkstone Point and finishing on Saundersfoot beach. This year, the event is supporting the following charities:
