Zoggs Get Set to Swim the Channel Again



Zoggs are the official partner of the Aspire Channel Swim 2013

21 August 2013: Leading swimwear brand Zoggs has today announced that it is again the official Corporate Partner for the Aspire Channel Swim in 2013.

Swimming the 22 miles of the English Channel is something many of us just dream about but Aspire make it happen by inspiring thousands of people each year to take part in a unique challenge to swim the full distance over a period of 12 weeks in their local pool from the 9th September to 1st December 2013.

Now in its 14th year, a massive £ 3.7 million has been raised for Aspire – supporting people with Spinal Cord Injury - since 1999.  This year, with the support of Zoggs, it is hoped even more will be raised for this fantastic cause.

David Annand, UK Marketing and PR Manager at Zoggs said: “We have a great passion for swimming, believing it to be one of life’s great pleasures.  We are extremely proud to be partnering the Aspire Channel Swim again in 2013 and encourage everyone – whatever age, sex or ability – to take part in this great challenge and raise much needed funds for those living with Spinal Cord Injury.”

Aspire’s Director of Fundraising and Marketing, Paul Parrish, added: “It is fantastic to have Zoggs on board again this year.  With their support, we hope that even more people will sign up for the 2013 Aspire Channel Swim, raising money which will help even more people with spinal cord injuries enjoy independence.”
