Swimwear brand Zoggs has today announced that it is again the official Corporate Partner for the Aspire Channel Swim in 2012.
Thousands of people take part, each year, in the challenge, which involves swimming the 22 miles of the English Channel over a period of 12 weeks.
Participants are encouraged to swim the distance in their local pool, from the September 10 to December 2.
Now in its 14th year, £3.5million has been raised for Aspire – supporting people with spinal injury – since 1999.
To further its association with Aspire and open water swimming, Zoggs will also be supplying swimwear to all of the Aspire swimmers who are attempting to cross the actual English Channel this summer.
Zoggs UK marketing manager David Annand said: “We have a great passion for swimming, indoor and outdoor, believing it to be one of life’s great pleasures. We are extremely proud to be partnering the Aspire Channel Swim again in 2012 and encourage everyone – whatever age, sex or ability – to take part in this great challenge and raise much needed funds for those living with spinal injuries.”
Aspire head of fundraising and marketing Chris Field, added “It is fantastic to have Zoggs on board again this year. With their support, we hope that even more people will sign up for the 2012 Aspire Channel Swim, raising money which will help even more people with spinal injuries enjoy independence.”
