"This is a terrific initiative from the world of swimming to help the fight against
the world's largest single disease killer of children, malaria.
Somewhere in the world, one child dies of malaria every 30 seconds. That's less
than the time it takes most of us to swim 50 metres.
Our associations bring together swimmers, waterpolo players, divers and synchronised
swimmers of all ages and levels in England, Scotland and Wales. Our members have
a great tradition of supporting good causes and we are delighted to be participating
alongside swimmers from all over the world in supporting the battle against malaria.
If you are a swimmer we invite you to join us all - swim, have fun and save lives."
