How far can you swim this November?

In 2015, 4954 people were diagnosed with lung cancer in the North West alone, which on average is 413 people every month. This November, for Lung Cancer Awareness Month (LCAM), we are asking the North West community to come together and help us swim a mile for every person who is diagnosed that month.
 

Swim the Distance is open to swimmers of all ages and abilities and we're encouraging swimmers to take part in our November campaign by swimming either one mile, five miles, ten miles or a marathon. The distance can be completed in one go or throughout the month of November.
 

It's completely free to take part; we just encourage participants to ask their family and friends to sponsor them with any raised going towards lung cancer research and providing support to those living with lung cancer.
 

At the end of your challenge, we'll send you a certificate and one of our Swim the Distance swimming badges, backed by Olympic legend Sharron Davies.
 

So dive in and complete your swimming badge to raise funds and awareness for lung cancer research!

Logging your miles

Don't forget to come back here and log your miles. You can do so from Tuesday 1st November. Remember we're trying to swim one mile for every person diagnosed with lung cancer in the North West in November - that's 413 miles - and raise money to help support those living with lung cancer. When you log your miles you will feature in our Swim 2 Distance Leaderboard. You'll also be able to see who else is taking part and how far they have swum.
