The annual 100-lap challenge was held 23 February 2013 at the Tatura swimming pool to raise funds for the Tatura Hospital and Parkvilla Aged Care Facility.

Each swimmer aimed to raise $100 in sponsorship; and all funds were donated directly to the hospital/aged care facility.

GV Health Tatura Hospital and Parkvilla Aged Care manager, Jayne French said this year, the funds were used to refurbish and beautify the front garden and fencing for residents and families to enjoy being outside.

“The garden was extended up to the footpath so the residents can have more contact with the community; they can now say hello to people walking past,” said Jayne.

This great fundraising event also helps promote fitness, especially with local children and families.
