Background 

Introduced in 2011 by SAFRA Tampines, 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. More than $800,000 has since been raised, benefiting 12 charity organisations such as Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore, Down Syndrome Association and SAF Care Fund.

The Singapore Swimming Association (SSA) One Team Singapore Fund will be used to enhance SSA High Performance Sport System to enable Singapore to be a world class aquatics nation with "Every Singaporean a Swimmer". In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the livelihood of coaches and the development of the swimmers in our pathway. Through the fundraising efforts, SSA hopes to upskill the local swimming coaches with free coaching workshops and assist them to secure available pool spaces, as well as to assist in the training needs of developmental athletes whose parents are struggling financially during this period.
