KWINANA swimmers of all ages swam an impressive combined distance of 32.4km to raise funds to help eliminate polio as part of a Rotary International project.

Rotary Club of Kwinana spokesman James Sharkey said 49 swimmers registered for the swimarathon held at the Recquatic Centre on February 26.

“As a club we did what we do best of all – worked together as a team,” Mr Sharkey said. “Our registration officials, lane marshals, barbecue team and swimmers all did a fantastic job.”
