Lifeguard Challenge

On Sunday, 17 March, a group of Waverley Council lifeguards will be taking part in the 2019 Lifeguard Challenge to raise money for the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation (SCHF).

The Lifeguard Challenge is a gruelling 30-kilometre fitness challenge from Bondi to North Cronulla via Maroubra held in partnership lifeguards from Randwick and Sutherland Shire.

Lifeguards from the three Councils will swim, paddle board and run to raise as much money as possible for children at the Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick.

The event kicks off at 6am at Bondi with a 2km paddle board to Bronte Beach. There will be vantage points along the way including at Bondi, Bronte, Coogee, Maroubra, Frenchman’s and Kurnell beaches.
