We are thrilled to announce for 2024 Macmillan Cancer Support is Go Swims official charity partner. Macmillan has partnered with Go Swim to encourage potential fundraisers to celebrate outdoor swimming whilst raising money for their incredible cause.

There’s around 3 million people living with cancer in the UK today, and more than 360,000 are diagnosed every year. At Macmillan, we give people with cancer everything we’ve got. If you’re diagnosed, your worries are our worries. We will move mountains to help you live life as fully as you can. And we don’t stop there. We’re going all out to find ever better ways to help people with cancer, helping to bring forward the day when everyone gets life-transforming support from day one.

The partnership extends across all 3 Go Swim events, offering swimmers two ways to get involved and fundraise:

  • Charity places: Sign up for one of Macmillan’s charity places, these places have a 50% discount on registration fees and a fundraising target of £150-£400 depending on your distance. Each charity place swimmer will receive a swimming hat, digital fundraising pack and training plans.
  • Use your own place: If you have entered a Go Swim event already and are now keen to use this chance to fundraise for Macmillan, follow the links below to sign up with Macmillan.
