Carterton, Wellington

The Carterton Indoor Pool is a gem. So many kids learn to swim here, all year round. The vision it serves is already 40 years ahead of our ratepayers' ability to fund it. There is 50 more years of life left in the pool but the building has reached retirement age. I am swimming to raise money for the new building.

I will be swimming as far as I can in March 2024 for this cause.

Not using an exercise tracker. But you can check out the google sheet where I am recording the swims in the "Other Page Links" below.

Thank you Gary. You are not my first donor from outside the Wairarpa but definitely the first from Eketahuna.
