‘Big Splash’ Mile Gathers a Lot of Support

There has been a huge support generated for Big Splash, which is to be held this weekend. There would be thousands of swimmers who would be taking part in this event to raise money for the charity. The money that would be generated from this event would be forwarded to Marie Curie Cancer Care. This charity has been in forefront in helping patients suffering from cancer, by providing them nursing care as well as encouraging research work to come up with new treatment procedures.

There would be nearly 645 pools that would be a part of this fund raiser event. There would be various categories that the participants would be taking part in and the main challenge would be the 2.5 km and 5 km Swimathon.

The event has generated a lot of hope for people suffering from cancer and there are many people taking part in it who have themselves overcome their inner fear to show compassion for the patients. Comedian Frank Skinner is also one of those people who would be going for a swim to raise money for the charity. He was inspired by Sport Relief to conquer his lifelong fear of water.

He said, “I really threw myself in at the deep end and faced one of my biggest phobias, swimming, by completing 25 meters for Sport Relief. It felt great to challenge myself, which is why I urged everyone to sign up for the Big Splash Mile for Sport Relief”. There are other charities also that would be benefitted with this event. The money raised by Milers will be spent to help people living incredibly tough lives in the UK, and across the world's poorest countries. This would help them uplift there lifestyle in order to sustain themselves.
