"This year we hope even more people will take the plunge and raise funds to help Marie Curie Nurses provide more free nursing care to terminally ill people in their own homes."
Thousands of people attend the Swimathon each year.
Local Marie Curie Cancer Care supporter Hannah, 18, said: "I supported Marie Curie Cancer Care through Swimathon as they helped to look after my grandma before she passed away and they had supported my family during this difficult time.
"I feel that everyone should sign up to Swimathon as it is a great self or team challenge and is for an amazing cause."
Held at more than 600 pools across the UK, Swimathon participants can raise money for Marie Curie through 5k, 2.5k and 1.5k individual challenges or team 5k or 1.5k challenges.
Funds raised for Marie Curie will provide free nursing care and support for people with terminal cancer and other illnesses.
