London City Swim is a charity swim, taking place in London Docklands on Friday 21st September 2018 from 4pm. The aim of the swim is to bring together hundreds of swimmers who wish to make a difference by swimming to raise funds and awareness for motor neurone disease (MND). Think of it as a charity gala, with a difference – replace the dance floor with a stunning body of open water, substitute dinner suits for a wetsuit and there’s no need for hairspray when you have a swimming hat.

A 500 metre swim to raise money for research into finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease (MND or ALS).
