Carterton, Wellington

I used to love swimming as a teen and have recently discovered how much I love it as an adult too! We use the Carterton Indoor pool multiple times a week for swimming lessons, evening swims with my friends and swimming for fitness. It is a fantastic asset and I am very keen to support the cause.

The CENTRAL ITM Big Swim is one of the Carterton Indoor Project fundraising events and is bringing together a community to raise the $1.7m needed to upgrade the pool facilities.

I will be be swimming 23km total in March to support the cause and would love your support 🏊‍♂️
