Swim the distance of the English Channel and help raise money for Aspire and people with spinal cord injuries.

You can raise money as an individual or as a team. The challenge is for all age groups and there are some great prizes for all swimmers.

Last year this challenge raised £350,000 but this year Everyone Active is hoping to help the charity reach the target of £500,000.
If you want to know how big a challenge this is then here are some figures:
- if your local pool is 25m long it equates to 1416 lengths (118 lengths a week)
- if your local pool is 33m long it equates to 1073 lengths (90 lengths a week)
- if your local pool is 50m long it equates to 708 lengths (59 lengths a week)
