UWCSEA Raises S$25,000 with Swim 4 Life

12 Jun 2013



On the waveless island of Singapore, United World College of South East Asia East Campus (UWCSEA-East), a K-12 International School consisting of 2500 students, continues to raise funds and awareness for SurfAid.

After five successful 24 Hour Swim Challenges, UWCSEA-East hosted the 12 Hour Swim 4 Life supported by Quiksilver. The idea for the event is quite simple, open the Swimming Pool for 12 hours and invite all members of the college community to swim as many laps as they are physically able to. 

During the 12 Hour period, close to 1500 swimmers jumped in the water and did their bit for SurfAid. Some students swam one lap; others like 15-year-olds India Bruhn and Celia Gaier completed 1080 laps (27 kilometres). After the event both girls commented: “Swimming so many laps has been one of the hardest things I have ever done. I am exhausted but glad that I am able to do my bit for SurfAid.”

Funds raised from the Swim 4 Life will be donated to SurfAid’s Malaria Free Program that aims to significantly reduce the prevalence and incidence of malaria in the Mentawai Islands, off Sumatra, Indonesia, through education, training and behaviour change. ...read more
