11月19日(日曜日)、4名の帝京大ダラムキャンパスの学生たちがダラム・ロータリークラブ主催のSwimathon(水泳マラソン)に参加しました。Swimathonは30分間にどれだけ泳げるか、それに対し寄付金を集めるチャリティーイベントです。地元の航空救急サービスなど様々な団体へ寄付を集めるため、計4,650mを泳ぎました。期待以上の成果に達成感を味わうとともに、学生たちにとって大変有意義な経験となったようです。

On Sunday 19th November Teikyo University took part in Durham Rotary Club’s annual Swimathon. The Swimathon is a charity event in which teams of swimmers are sponsored to swim as far as they can in 30 minutes, with proceeds going to the Great North Air Ambulance service and other worthy local causes. Ryutaro, So, Yusuke, Taichi and myself took part in this year’s Swimathon, cheered on by Asami, Chihiro and Yohei. Between the five of us we swam a total of 186 lengths (4,650m) in the 30 minute window, much better than we had expected! It was a tiring but very rewarding experience!
