Annual Rotary Carl Oake Swimathon


Since 1987 the wider community has joined Carl Oake to make the Rotary Club of Canada’s swimathon a success for the people of Peterborough. With your help, we have supported a special Easter Seals Ambassador every year for over 30 years. Every new year a new Ambassador needs us to rally behind them and their family.

The Carl Oake Swimathon is our chance to fulfill that promise.
