Dear Participants,

The Race Pack Collection for SAFRA Swim for Hope 2017 will be on Sat, 14 Oct 2017, 10am-7pm at SAFRA Toa Payoh Atrium. NRIC/Photo ID is required for verification.

The next available Race Pack Collection will be during the event (20-22 Oct) and the respective clubs it is taking place at.

Do note that regardless of slots taken, each participant will receive 1 race pack only.

At the Race Pack Collection on 14 Oct, present your SAFRA card and redeem a $3 GRAB voucher. While stocks last. Terms and conditions apply.

Be a part of our annual charity swim and join us in raising money for our beneficiaries: Aquatics Heart & Hope, Singapore Disability Sports Council, Rainbow Centre Singapore and the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Care Fund. All proceeds raised will go to charity.

The annual charity swim will be held from 20 to 22 Oct 2017 at SAFRA clubs in Tampines, Toa Payoh, Mount Faber, Yishun and Jurong.

To commemorate 50 years of National Service, we are introducing a special NS50 Challenge with individual and team categories.

The NS50 Individual Challenge will test the physical endurance and mental resilience of participants, who will swim 50 laps at each of the 5 participating SAFRA clubs on consecutive days to complete 250 laps – en route to the illustrious 250 laps finisher tee and respective club medals.

NS units, organisations and members of the public can also participate by forming teams of 5 participants to swim 50 laps each in the NS50 Team Challenge. Teams receive discounted group rates.

SAFRA Swim for Hope will also feature an Open category where individuals can swim any number of laps, and a Families for Life Parent-and-Child category to encourage more families to participate together and bond through the event.

Please refer to the event details below for the schedule of event at the respective SAFRA clubs and register accordingly. We look forward to joining hands to make waves for better lives!
