Swimathon is a four-week crowdfunding campaign, and a fantastic community event. The swimmers choose which cause they want to promote, thus they become the “ambassadors” of their selected project. In their fundraising effort they set their own goal for the distance and time that they want to swim. The first Swimathon was organised by the Ferencváros Community Foundation (Ferencvárosi Közösségi Alapítvány, FKA) in 2016. You can follow the crowdfunding campaign preceding the event on this page.
“The success of the previous two events has unequivocally proven that Swimathon offers an enormous opportunity in two respects: it promotes swimming as a healthy sport activity and helps fundraising for good causes.” A Board Member of the Swimathon Foundation
