Starlight Super Swim Participants Enjoy Free Access at the Centenary Aquatic Centre

Centenary Aquatic Centre

The Starlight Super Swim Challenge is on at Centenary Aquatic Centre in Spring Hill, where participants may enjoy free access to the pool facilities.

For the whole month of February 2023, anyone who wants to join the swim challenge, regardless of age or fitness level, may use the pool without any cost if they are raising $2 million for 50,000 sick children. The initiative will help provide vital hospital services like Captain Starlight and the Starlight Express Rooms

The Starlight Children’s Foundation, alongside Speedo, the world’s leading swimwear brand, brings this challenge for a fifth year across 23 pools in the country, including the Centenary Aquatic Centre in Spring Hill.

Throughout the challenge, participants may receive training and fundraising tips, as well as rewards and incentives from the sponsors. They may also track the distance they’ve swam via the fitness app Strava, as well as encourage friends and family to show their support and donate to the cause. 

They need to complete the challenge by the 28th of February 2023.

“We’re delighted to be able to support Starlight’s Super Swim Challenge. Giving Australians free access to some local swimming pools means even those who don’t live by a beach or have a pool at home can participate and help raise vital funds to bring happiness to sick kids,” James Hickman of Speedo said.

“Starlight has a special place in my heart as it’s supported my family during some extremely tough days in the hospital,” Starlight Ambassador Brook Hanson OAM said.

“Whether it’s just a hand on your shoulder to say, ‘it’s okay’ or having a cup of tea in the Starlight Express Room, it really does make a difference and I’ve witnessed it firsthand.

“So, this February I encourage you to grab your Speedos and join me for this year’s Super Swim. Together we can make a difference for sick kids and their families.”

On the other hand, Starlight Louise Baxter said: “Being seriously ill shouldn’t mean missing out on the joy of childhood. Especially when evidence shows happiness makes a difference to a child’s ability to cope and their long-term health outcomes.”

“Starlight has been there for sick kids when they need it most and there are no fewer sick kids who need the fun, joy and laughter Starlight brings.

“Super Swim participants will join a fundraising community of thousands as they attempt to beat their personal swimming goals and replicate the success of last year’s event, which raised over $2 million for Starlight.”
