Aquafit users join forces for swimathon

March 15 2017

We have called our team freedom from as we believe that Marie Curie helps free sufferers and their families from the stresses associated with a terminal illness.

Aquafit users are doing it for Marie Curie

Bexhill Leisure Pool are supporting Swimathon 2017 with a 5 strong team of aquafit users including Jackie Lawson-McBrien their aquafit teacher.

The swimathon takes place at the pool on Saturday 8th April between 4-7pm where the team named Freedom From will tackle the sponsored swim.

The group decided to support the swimathon as they all have a love of water and swimming, a love of family and a love of helping others. The regular aquafit customers workout with Jackie most weeks and have grown in to a close knit team during classes which they hope will translate well during the swim.

On a personal level my father died 50 years ago this year when I was just 13 years old and I know how much an organistation like Marie Curie would have helped him and my family.
