12 hour overnight swim-a-thon for Zoue

Abbotsleigh’s fearless insomniacs contributed to the 12 hour overnight swim-a-thon for Zoue Sefton at Waves Aquatic Centre recently.

Our team consisted of: Harry and Callum Trethowan, Shaun Champion, Tom and Georgia Peregrina, Georgia O’Connor, Amy and Holly Nelson, Natasha and Ben Ramsden, Emily Ong, Matt Kelly, Jaimey Yeats and Lachie Dunlop.

Despite splashing off at 6pm sharp the paparazzi didn’t arrive til 3:45am to snap these shots of the pre-dawn crew. Congratulations swimmers and thank you to all of our supporters who contributed $1,100 to the cause. We are all wishing Zoue the very best with her treatment.
