The 2019 Lifeguard Challenge kicks off at 6.30am on Sunday 17 March at Bondi Beach.

Watch the sunrise and cheer on our Lifeguards as they paddle, swim and run to Cronulla with lifeguards from Randwick and Sutherland Shire to raise money for the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation (SCHF).

There will be vantage points along the way, so bring your cheer squad.
