Vampire Swim – Saturday 31st October

For the first time the Vampire Swim is coming to Cork, thanks to Aisling Barry, the Vampire Swim is going ahead in Myrtleville on Saturday October 31st at 12 midday.  Swim is a loose term – you can just dip your feet for a paddle if you want.  The goal is to encourage people to donate blood during this month.   If you donate blood, the entry fee is €10 – if not, you can still swim, but it’s €15.

Funds raised will be donated to the CUH Children’s Ward charity.

To Enter and get a cool swim hat (for the first 50 people that pre-enter and do swim on the day) email Aisling Barry for details – barry.aisling08@gmail.com.  For info on giving blood, see http://www.giveblood.ie book your time and date or check the FAQ if unsure of anything.

It’s a great idea and a worldwide event, glad Cork is doing their bit. Thanks Aisling! http://openwaterpedia.com/index.php?title=Vampire_Swims

    I would be curious to know what percentage of the open water swimming community are actually eligible to donate blood. I suppose it will be quite an elite event!
