We are delighted this month to have made the Shortlist for the 2013 Coca-Cola Thank You Fund. Coca Cola are offering 11 Grants(1x25K, 10x10K) to projects that will encourage healthy and active lifestyles.
Swim Ireland have submitted the “Swimathon” project to the fund. The Swimathon is the swimming mile and is viewed as the swimming equivalent of the marathon. The aim of this project is to encourage people to get swimming with a view to completing the Swimathon at a number of events across Ireland organised and run by Swim Ireland in March and April 2014.
The shortlist announced this week is a selection of 45 organisations who have applied for the grant. Swim Ireland are looking for your help to make the last 11. Please go online to the Coca Cola Thank You Fund website and vote for Swim Ireland (named as Irish Amateur Swimming Association (Swim Ireland) before the 30th September and help us to make the project a reality. The public vote will account for 50 per cent of the final decision and a vote by an expert judging panel will account for the remaining 50 per cent.
