SAFRA Swim For Hope is back!

Introduced in 2011 by SAFRA Tampines, SAFRA Swim For Hope provides an opportunity for Operationally Ready National Serviceman and their families to contribute to charitable causes, while promoting fitness and bonding through swimming.

The event adopts various charities each year to raise funds to help the needy and has benefitted more than 15 charity organizations such as Autism Resource Centre, Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore, Down Syndrome Association and more.

For the 13th edition this year, the event aims to show support to individuals who are recovering or suffering from mental health struggles and uplift their quality of lives.

This year, SAFRA Swim For Hope will adopt 3 different swim modes:

  1. Full Virtual – where participants can swim at their own preferred location / schedule and submit their swim records via the event portal
  2. Full Physical – swim will be completed at selected SAFRA Club
  3. Hybrid – virtual with completion of 1KM physical swim at selected SAFRA Club

Come join us to make a splash for a good cause and make waves for better lives!
