The CHOC Cows /Friends of Swimmers Trust/Chad le Clos Foundation Midmoo Mile
The CHOC Cows is a group of people on a mission to change the lives of families and children living with cancer.
The 2020 aQuelle Midmar mile takes place from 8-9 February. The CHOC Cows will have their own event where all the swimmers that raised funds will swim in their CHOC Cow swimsuits during this event.
Our swim team is a very caring group of swimmers. Clubs are just people with a mutual interest whereas a team care and look after each other’s well-being.
In line with this philosophy, we care about all children including those that cannot swim and those with cancer. We believe that we can do some good with our swimming talent and use it to raise funds for kids with cancer.
North Coast Dolphins Swim Team joined forces with two charities namely:
The CHOC Cows
Learn-to-swim kiddies, junior and senior swimmers (even if you are not a NC Dolphins swimmer) each raise R 1,500-00 using the special The CHOC Cows Fundraising page to earn a CHOC Cows swimsuit. The suits are unique and good quality (Speedo).
Please ask all family and friends that donate to enter your name into the comments block in order for us to tally up all donations. A nice encouraging message may accompany your name.
Swimmers may use their suits at any time for example training and at fun galas. Age group swimmers may race in their suits at KZNA events.
Friends of Swimmers Trust/Chad le Clos Foundation

Coach Dominique Donner is an 8-mile club member. This means that she swims the Midmar mile eight times over two days to raise funds for the Friends of Swimmers Trust/Chad le Close Foundation.
Coach Dom asked NC Dolphins swimmers that raise funds for The CHOC Cows Midmoo Mile to donate 10% (R 150-00) to Coach Dominique Donner’s fundraising page. (Follow the steps on the page).
Marc Forrest, a NC Dolphins parent joins Coach Dom this year for the 8 mile swim at Midmar to raise funds. Please feel free to contribute at Marc’s fundraising page.
This money goes straight to Friends of swimmers Trust/Chad le Clos Foundation which is then used to support the NC Dolphins outreach programmes.
We keep a list of the fundraisers and their swimsuit sizes. This list will be sent through to The CHOC Cows.
The CHOC Cows set up a collection point approximately a week before Midmar mile where all fundraisers may collect their suits.
Details will be made available as soon as we receive it from THE COWS.
