For many kids and parents, swimming is a fun activity to be enjoyed as a family. What if you can have fun in the pool as a family and also raise funds for the needy at the same time?
Through Liberty SAFRA Swim For Hope 2021, families can take part in the charity swim event to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association Singapore (MDAS) under Community Chest, Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Care Fund and Singapore Swimming Association (SSA).
For the 2nd year in a row, Swim For Hope will be conducted as a virtual swim marathon with Liberty Insurance proud to be back as title sponsor after a successful event last year!
Join As A Family - Do Good Together!

Convenience - As a virtual event, families can choose where and when to complete the challenge. It could be a pool near you, a beach or even at a SAFRA swimming pool - all at your family's convenience! This is great for families since you don't have to go to a specific venue or at a specific time (no need to rush the kids around).
Fun Family Activity - There is no pressure to complete the entire distance in a single session. You may choose to break up the distance and attempt the marathon as part of the family's weekly visit to the pool!
Suitable For Kids - Also, it is not a competitive marathon, so the kids can use floats and kickboards to participate even if they are not yet strong swimmers. Parents can assist to clock in their distance and upload onto the Swim for Hope portal for recordkeeping!
Here’s a tip for mummies and daddies who like to take up a challenge, you may wish to take part in the 10km, 20km or 55km categories to compete on the challenge leaderboard and see how you compare with other participants! For swimmers taking part in the Families for Life or 1KM category, you can enjoy your swim in a fun and stress-free manner as you can collect your entitlements upon completion of the distance, and not be worried about the leader
Goodie Bags & Entitlements
Family members will just need to complete a minimum of 1km (total distance as a family) before 5 Dec 2021, 12 pm to receive a participant tee, goodie bag of sponsored items and finisher medal each! Daddies and Mummies who intend to sign-up for multiple categories, you will be entitled to one event tee and goodie bag for every category that you signed up for and completed!
