We are raising funds for people with Dementia!

Our Ocean swimming mob - the Sharkbaiters - will each Tug an inflatable Toy on our regular Ocean swim from Wollongong Harbour to North Wollongong Surf Club - and back on the 1st May commencing at 6.30am

Please make a donation to support our efforts and help us reach our goal to beat dementia.

All funds raised will support the work of Dementia Australia to provide vital support services for people living with dementia, their families and carers. These services include counselling, support groups, education and training.

Thank you for your support.

Thank you for doing this, in the last 8 weeks my family and I have watched my beautiful mother and nunna decline as her dementia has not well and truly fragmented her brain.
