DEVILS 12 HOUR SPLASH FOR MND
The Devonport Devils Masters Swimming Club will participate in a 12-hour mega-swim E1000 Endurance relay. The purpose is to help fund research and provide much needed care, equipment and services to support people and their families living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in Tasmania.
All participants in this endurance event would like you to support their swimming and help make their efforts worthwhile.
In 2020 Dr Brynley Parry was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and faced a challenge that changed his career and his family’s life forever. MND also took away some things he loved, but in 2021 he joined the Devonport Devils Masters Swimming Club which is helping him continue exercising for as long as he can. Bryn has shown himself to be a determined club swimmer and the Devils will honour their swimming buddy with a show of their determination to swim for 12 hours in order to support MND patients and research.
· You can register via this page to join us as a swimmer at Splash Devonport Aquatic and Leisure Centre. You do not have to be a member of the Devonport Devils to participate. If you can swim 100m unaided you can register for this event.
· You do NOT have to attend for the whole 12 hours. Once you have registered you will be contacted to allow you to select your preferred swim time(s).
· Our swimming goal is to have a one swimmer in the water for the entire 12 hours forming a continuous relay.
· Ask your friends, family and colleagues to help by donating towards your swim. These donations will support MND patients and their families, like our swimming buddy Bryn hopefully help find a cure for MND.
· Prize draw for swimmers after every hour.
· Prize for person who raises the most donations.
Make your laps count. Your donations go directly towards MND research.
NOTE: Entry to the relay is free, usual entry fees into the pool still apply.
