Tate and Joshua (both who are Special Olympic swimmers) are aiming to swim across Lake Taupo, that's a 33KM Marathon swim.

Tate and Joshua have been supported by Special Olympics North Harbour & Waitakere Clubs and now its their time to help raise funds to support all athletes in these clubs to attend the National Summer Games being held later this year in Hamilton.

The swim is weather dependent and there is an opportunity to Swim across in early April
