EDITORS NOTES

Youth Day is a public holiday on which South Africans remember the young people who lost their lives in the struggle against Apartheid and Bantu Education. In a wider context we celebrate our youth who represent our future. It seems fitting then, that an open water event should be held to celebrate such an occasion.



EDITORS NOTES

It is usually a Swim Series tradition is to give back to the community in a meaningful way. The proceeds of the Youth Day swim are donated to The Homestead, an organisation that helps re-integrate street children into communities. The Youth Day Swim in 2016 raised R10,000 for the children’s home, accumulated from swim entry fees and a donation from the Cadiz Financial Strategy Group.
