Pure Leasing’s Principal, Cam Ewers will be undertaking the challenge of his first solo crossing in the Rottnest Channel Swim, on Saturday 23 February 2019.
Having previously competed in the event in teams and a duo, Cam is taking the next step and will be attempting the challenging 19.7 kilometres on his own.
“I thought – well – it’s a good a time as any,” said Cam. “I’m always going to have a lot going on in my life, but now that I’ve hit 30 and have two very young kids, I’d better get this done before things get even busier.”
“I must say that I find the training really helps to focus my mind, and although it takes time and energy, it benefits my working life; I’ve always believed that “the more you do, the more you get done””, he said.
Pure Leasing is also continuing its commitment to the local community by sponsoring the 250 metre “Try-It” event at Australia’s oldest open water swim, the Swim Thru Perth, which will be celebrating its 100th swim in 2019. The event will be held at Matilda Bay on Sunday 20 January 2019.
The Pure Leasing Central 250 metre “Try-It” event is aimed at children and people with disabilities, in a protected, safe environment where swimmers can get a taste of the wonderful world of open water swimming.
“It’s a pleasure to be involved, once again, in this family-oriented, community event, which raises significant funds for charity – which for this year is Telethon Speech and Hearing,” said Cam.
“To date, the Swim Thru Perth has raised over $50,000 for a number of worthy charities, and we’re proud to be able to do our bit to help this figure grow,” he said.
The Swim Thru Perth is part of the WOW Swims community swim series, and offers a range of distances to suit all ages and abilities in addition to the 250 metre event. You can choose from the flagship 3.5 kilometre swim – which this year is returning to its historic course from the city to Matilda Bay – as well as the 1600 metre Classic Mile swim and an 800 metre option.
