Starfish Fitness TriAthletic Club raise over $1,200 for Sport Access Foundation

February 15, 2019

What a fantastic way to celebrate Australia Day with Starfish Fitness TriAthletic Club's inaugural swim-a-thon.

They nominated Sport Access Foundation for their 100 x 100m swim challenge and raised an incredible $1,260, with a total of 160km swam in the pool.

Our Founder, Katie Kelly OAM once again got out in the community and attended the event and shared with the Club some insights and practical ways for Club's to be inclusive. She also got in the pool and did some laps as well!

Some of the stats from the day included:

  • Here are the stats:
  • 57 swimmers
  • 160km swam, that’s equivalent to swimming from Goodlife Health Clubs Alex Hills to either Noosa Main Beach or Byron Bay Beach!
  • $1,300 raised and donated to Sport Access Foundation
  • 2 individual swimmers did all 100x100 (totally 10km) solo
  • 3 teams from Redland Plodders
  • kick boards, pull buoys, wetsuits, flippers, paddles and even a swim band were all used!
  • nearly 100 sausages were eaten, gallons of coffee were drunk (thanks to the The Good Cafe)

Thank you to all of you at StarFish Fitness, and to Head Coach Ben Luscombe and TriathleteTed.
