Australia Day Aquathon has a long and proud history of supporting local Illawarra non-for
profit and charity groups.

Since 1999 over $298,000 in donations and participant fund raising has been provided to local surf clubs, athletic clubs, sporting groups and charities.

Aquathon is proud to support the charities who volunteer their services to provide enormous support to the event with five associations involved.

Participant fund raising is optional and since 2002 the preferred charity partner is Illawarra Anglicare.

You are encouraged to fund raise for our preferred charity partner or one of your choice

SHIFT is a new Anglicare initiative to provide support and housing for families in transition – particularly refugees and those fleeing domestic violence. In addition to providing families with access to low-cost, short-term housing, SHIFT links families with a case manager to assist them accessing other Anglicare and government services as required.
