SAFRA's iconic annual charity event, Swim For Hope, is back! This year, families and friends who participate in the event can bond through swimming and do their part for charity - helping to raise the target of $500,000 for 5 beneficiaries!
To encourage greater participation and foster bonding, the event will take on a hybrid format where participants can choose to swim at their own location and time or complete the distance through a combination of virtual and physical on-site swim!

Students from the Special Olympics Singapore have also been training and practicing their swimming at SAFRA Tampines in order to participate in Swim For Hope 2022.
How Can You Contribute To The Fundraising Efforts
Nett proceeds from the registration fee and fundraising efforts will be donated to the beneficiaries - so you are helping just by taking part and by setting up fundraising target for your swim - share your fundraising target with family members and friends to encourage them to support your efforts through monetary donations.
SAFRA will also be introducing the More Than a Box initiative where participants may purchase boxes that include food items or daily essentials. These can be purchased online via the event portal. Sales from the initiative will contribute to the fundraising target and participants may also choose to donate the purchased boxes to the adopted beneficiary (Fei Yue Aging Centre under the President's Challenge) as well.
