What is Swim a Mile With A Smile?
The Ian Daly Swim a Mile with a Smile is a charity fundraiser in aid of Barretstown and Crumlin Children’s Hospital. It takes place in the National Aquatic Centre on the 25th and 26th of May. Organised by Brian & Laura Daly in memory of their son Ian, this event has been going strong since 2004.
In 2018 approximately 1000 swimmers took part and helped raise an amazing €30,000. To date the Daly family have raised an amazing €580,000 for the two charities since the event began 15 years ago
