Whether you’re a regular swimmer or just like to dip your toes in the water occasionally, Swim for Survival is our fun, easy and super flexible swim challenge where you can get fit and raise vital funds and awareness of pancreatic cancer!

Your sponsored swim can take place at any time and in any location: at your local pool; in open water; or even in the sea on holiday! ☀️

Either together as a group of friends or colleagues, or swimming individually, you can combine your distances together to reach your overall target. You don’t need to have an official adjudicator at your event, just keep a tally of your lengths or distance!

All you have to do is select your distance:

Why should I Swim for Survival? 

Funding and awareness for pancreatic cancer is vital as the disease has been underfunded for decades. Regardless of being the UKs 5th biggest cancer killer, pancreatic cancer receives less than 3% of government cancer research funding.
