About the Charity Challenge

Since 2016, aQuelle Midmar Mile has been raising funds for charitable causes. With only 120 swimmers in that first year, just over R1million was distributed to 7 large and 11 smaller charities. In the years that have followed, we have had up to 230 people swimming either 8 or 16 miles over 2 days and raising a total of over R3million.

aQuelle Midmar Mile is privileged to support all the swimmers involved in this initiative and tremendously grateful for the effort that they put into raising the funds required. In the last 7 years, they have collectively raised over R14.5million.
