Thanks to all our helpers!
The Moorpanyal Park 1000 started as an annual swim in 2000 with just fourteen swimmers. Now averaging more than 100 contestants, it continues to grow.
It was the brainchild of North Shore residents Jim Anderson and Dale Jennings. Together they organised a team of people who donated their time and talents to make the swim possible.
Thanks to all of these people for their ongoing support of the Moorpanyal Park 1000, and special thanks to members of the North Shore community.
