Raise money for SwimBowen Society

SwimBowen 2019 is officially in it's 2nd year! 

This year's event will be taking place on Saturday, July 20 at Tunstall Bay on beautiful Bowen Island. 

Our swimmers are currently fundraising and would love your support! You can donate to an individual swimmer or to our event. All proceeds benefit the registered not-for-profit SwimBowen Society, which assists Bowen Islanders undergoing cancer treatment. To learn more about our Cancer Care Fund, visit:

If you would like to donate, please note our deadlines (for this year's event) below:

  • July 20, 2019 at Noon (race day!) - Donation cut-off for individual/swimmer donations!
  • July 26, 2019 at 9:00pm - Donation cut-off for event/ donations!

We will be announcing the top fundraiser at our post-race celebration & BBQ on Saturday, July 20. We will be announcing the grand total of all monies raised in early August 2019. 

Thank you so much for supporting our swimmers and our community.

PS - In addition to the monies raised through donations via RaceRoster, we are also collecting donations through registration fees, corporate & community sponsorship and cash donations. To learn more about this year's sponsors, visit:
