Save the Carterton indoor pool. 100km in the month of March.

Carterton, Wellington

I am Scarlett Wadham, I am 13 years old and a competitive swimmer for the Carterton Swimming Club and I want to help raise funds so we can save the Carterton Indoor Pool. In the month of March I am going to swim 100 km at the Carterton Pool which is the same distance as the English Channel, Cook Strait and Taupo.

Swimming is such an important skill to have so you can enjoy all our wonderful lakes, rivers and coastline we have in NZ. I hope every child in NZ has the opportunity to learn to swim which is why we need to save the Carterton pool, which is one of the only indoor facility in South Wairarapa for learn to swim.

Please help me raise funds so every person has to same opportunities to swim that I have had.
