Group sea swim to raise money for a good cause.

September 7 2018 Categories: Our News, Uncategorized

We’re raising money for an open incubator for the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) Torbay Hospital. For newborn babies who are premature or need extra care.

Having been in the position, spending 5 weeks of her life in The SCBU unit with two of her sons that were born 33 weeks and 36 weeks premature, Liz Riley has decided to try and raise £5000 to help others in a similar situation.

 

The Guys at Zone 3 have kindly sponsored the swimmers with some kit!

Along with friends and other families who’ve either been in a similar situation, or just want to help out a good cause, Liz has organised a sponsored swim. Thirty people who will be, some for the first time, completing an open water swim from one end of Blackpool Sands to the other (roughly 1400 metres).

The participants will be swimming in their Zone 3 Advance suits, Attack Goggles and their bright, easily identifiable, Zone 3 swim caps.

Together with Zone 3, us here at Triocean, Venus Company and other supporters, they are hoping to complete the swim and raise enough money to make a difference in the incubation unit at Torbay Hospital.
