Karma Group Celebrates Sponsorship of The 2017 Karma Resorts Rottnest Channel Swim

January 27, 2017 Sports No Comments Email Email

On Saturday, February 25th, 2017 Karma Group will once again sponsor the Karma Resorts Rottnest Channel Swim. The 19.7km open water swim from Cottesloe Beach to Rottnest Island is highly regarded worldwide and is one of Western Australias iconic eventsWhether competing as a solo, duo or team, the Karma Resorts Rottnest Channel Swim is a teamevent with all swimmers surrounded by a support network of paddlers, boat skippers and crew. The event, managed by the Rottnest Channel Swim Association, is held in February of each year and is Rottnest Islands biggest day.

Paul Newsome, one of the worlds leading open water swim instructors, has been announced as the expert Karma Swim Ambassador for this years event. Paul will be providing invaluable training tips to teams and members leading up to the swim. Paul will be joined as Ambassador by Richie Strahan from The Bachelor, Australia.

Last years swim was an unparalleled success with a total of 2,943 swimmers, including a healthy international contingent and competitors from all over Australia, said John Spence, Founder and Chairman of Karma Group. “I am always inspired by stories like that of the Williams family, with 15 year old Olivia completing the 2015 Rottnest Channel Swim as a solo swimmer accompanied by her dad Richard as paddler and supporter. Olivia and Richard then competed in the 2016 swim as a duo and this year mum Natasha will go for HER solo swim! In my mind, the Williams family sums up the Karma ethos of training hard, working hard and playing even harder.”

The running of the event is reliant upon the seamless professionalism and efficient management of the Rottnest Channel Swim Association and the many volunteers, paddlers, skippers and event organizers that work behind the scenes to make an event such as this a success. In recognition of their efforts, this year Karma Group is offering them a special Karma Club membership with 40% discount at any of their global resorts, plus 25% off food and beverages.

In addition, this year Karma Group are proudly supporting Cancer Council WA by providing a charity team, fully equipped with a boat, skipper, and professional swim coach, for the event. Cancer Council WA are using the opportunity to raise vital funds to help them continue their work in reducing the impact and incidence of cancer in the West Australian community. Throughout the event, the Cancer Council WA SunSmart team will also be promoting their Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek, Slide message to reinforce the importance of being SunSmart to all participants.

I will be joining the Karma team in cheering on all participants in this years Karma Resorts Rottnest Channel Swim,continued John Spence. “I look forward to another resoundingly successful celebration of life, achievement and, perhaps most importantly, fun!”
