It's a little bit crazy and a lot of fun
"What on Earth!"
The Nude Dude Swim is a non spectator event where swimmers will register to swim 100m and raise funds through their individual sponsorship to participate. Participants must be over the age of 18 to join in this adventure in the water - without our clothes!
"Where on Earth?"
The location will be within 20 minutes drive of the Tauranga CBD and will be closed to the public for this event. The swim will be held at high tide - that's 6.30-7.30ish on 15 March 2018.
"Why on Earth?"
We were inspired for this event by the Sydney Skinny - we want to create a fundraising event that celebrates who we are no matter our size, shape or gender. Part of the inspiration for this event came from seeing footage of a Sydney Skinny with women who had mastectomies without reconstruction taking part and celebrating being alive.
We are so lucky to have the bodies we have and its wonderful to feel the sun and water on our skin as we bare all for breast cancer.
"Just how naked do we have to be?"
We will provide very cool sarongs for you to wear on disrobing that you can wear to the waters edge where you drop your sarong and dive on in. The swim route is a 'there and back' so that you can come back to that precious sarong for when you get out of the water.
