Hug a Swimmer Day 2011
Hug a Swimmer day began as a Facebook event began 1st December 2009 telling the world to hug a swimmer! Designed to share the love of our favourite sport and bring people closer together, we think this is a fantastic event for us all to take part in! So 1st December 2011 get out there and find a swimmer you know and give them a hug! So far, there are over 50,000 people ‘attending’ or taking part in this event around the world this year according to Facebook and there are still a few weeks to go – are you one of these people? Last year, Hug a Swimmer Day was so popular that this year is Hug a Diver Day too! Unfortunately this hasn’t had quite the same success as Hug a Swimmer Day but the thought still counts!
