The Fitzroy Bandits (thanks Hele)

Create Your Own

Rotto Swim 2021

We are taking on the Rottnest Channel swim as a duo, Hele will be swimming 18 km's and Jack, 2. We want to throw our support behind Team Black Dog and all the amazing and groundbreaking research they are doing into mental health.

Mental illness affects 1 in 5 Australians every year, with the most common being depression and anxiety. Mental illness doesn’t discriminate. It affects people from all walks of life — individuals, families, workplaces and communities.

Please reach into your pockets and donate to this incredible organisation and if you can't do that, do you want to supply a boat/paddle for us?

**If Mark McGowan does not let us into the state, we will toil out the 19.7kms in the Fitzroy pool**

Cheers,

Hele and Jack aka the Fitzroy Bandits...
