Balmoral Swim for Cancer
The Balmoral Swim for Cancer a family-friendly open water, charity event raising funds for the Children's Cancer Institute. It is a unique event as it is one of the few swims held within the safety and beauty of Sydney Harbour. A great event for all comers.
The swim is organised completely by volunteers, most of whom are members of the Balmoral Beach Club. However, the entire local community gets behind the event to make it happen. Mosman Council, HMAS Penguin and the Balmoral Sea Scouts all lend a hand and the event is fortunate to have the support of a generous group of sponsors; Allianz (Platinum), Medlab (Silver) Audi Mosman (Gold), URM (Gold), Edney Ruan (Bronze), Jeckra (Bronze), Raine and Horne Mosman (Bronze), Mortgage Choice (Bronze) and Ocean Swims (Supporter).
Children's Cancer Institute is the proud beneficiary of funds raised to date, with a total of $815,135 being donated. Children's Cancer Institute is the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to curing childhood cancer, research into the causes, better treatment, prevention and cure of childhood cancer. Every one of our supporters makes a difference to a child in need.
