Head Above Water Swimathon 2024

Head Above Water Swimathon 2024

From March 2nd – 3rd, the Head Above Water 24-Hour Swimathon returns to Collaroy Rockpool for the sixth year, after raising over $650,000 from 2019 to 2023 for mental fitness and suicide prevention programs across the Northern Beaches and throughout Australia.

For the first time in the event’s history, people who are out of town, interstate or overseas will also be able to participate in Head Above Water from anywhere in the world (click on the link below for more details).

Over the last five years, Head Above Water has helped fund mental fitness workshops, presentations and training from partners including Anchor Health (formerly Man Anchor), Tomorrow Man, Tomorrow Woman, Meditation HQ, and Spoke International.

From 2019 to 2023, over 450 programs have been facilitated, reaching more than 14,500 men, women, boys and girls across schools, sports clubs, businesses, and community groups.
