Swim marathon, landmark lightings to mark Rotary's anniversary

Rotary International News -- 3 February 2012


 The Rotary Club of Grantham, Lincolnshire, England,
will be attempting to set a world record with a global swimming event 25 February.
Thousands of participants around the world plan to swim 100 meters
or more on 25 February in an effort to set a new Guinness World Record
and to raise money for Rotary's polio eradication campaign.
It's just one of many events being planned by Rotarians the week
of 23 February to celebrate Rotary's 107th anniversary.
The global event is being organized by the Rotary Club of Grantham, Lincolnshire, England,
which has held an annual swim fundraiser since 1990 to support local charities.
Participants swim laps in a pool to raise pledges during the "swimarathons."
This year, in addition to their local event, the Grantham Rotarians
 decided to spearhead a worldwide swim the week of Rotary’s anniversary. In order to set a new one-hour swimming record, they need 2,355 swimmers to complete
 more than 100 meters between 12:00 and 13:00 GMT.
So far, 78 clubs have registered to participate
by holding their own swimming fundraisers for polio.
"The idea of setting a world record started as a bit of a joke," says Roger Graves, event chair.
 "But now that the reality has set in, we hope to set a new world record,
raise funds toward eliminating polio, increase awareness of Rotary,
 and encourage more people to swim and stay fit."
