Why Swim

SWIM FOR RELAY FOR LIFE AND THE FOUNDATION AGAINST CANCER

Splash adds our own Relay to the Relay for Life. As we approach our 37th Splash Swimarathon, the Lions Club Brussels Heraldic  with its well known Swimarathon Relay has supported over 300 valuable charities making a meaningful difference to the lives of others both in Belgium and abroad.

Splash has become so much more than a healthy, fun outing at the pool. Having collected and contributed well over €1.5 million to groups and individuals in need, Splash has become one of the key dates on the Brussels charity calendar. The Lions serve the community and that community includes you, your concerns and interests. Please feel free to contact us (lionsheraldic@gmail.com) with any ideas or contributions and we'll see what we can do! Even better, do not hesitate to join us to work together to serve those in need.

For this years edition of SPLASH, our traditional swimming relay with your help will directly support the fight against cancer by partnering with Relay for Life and the Foundation against Cancer.

 

RELAY FOR LIFE

Relay for Life

As in previous years, the Lions Club participated in Relay For Life in Waterloo. In 2020 this takes place from Saturday May 16 to Sunday 17 May. It is a festive event for all ages that focuses on solidarity and fund-raising for the fight against cancer. Over 24 hours, the community members of a city, town or locality mobilise themselves in order to:

  • Celebrate and pay tribute to people that have conquered cancer, and support those that are still fighting the disease;
  • Remember people that have lost their fight against cancer and support those still fighting the disease;
  • Stand united in the fight against cancer.
