Registration fees – along with donation box collections, individual outright donations and corporate donations –  will go straight into the donation pool.

In terms of proceeds generated by the swim waves, donations will be calculated based on the total number of 50-metre laps clocked in by all participants across the 5 SAFRA clubs. Swimming from one end of the pool to the other – approximately 50 metres in length., will constitute as one lap.
