SINGAPORE — A new record was set yesterday in the Singapore Book of Records for the most number of laps swum in six hours at this year’s SAFRA Swim For Hope.

More than 400 National Servicemen and their families got together to complete 22,637 laps in an effort to raise funds for the Community Chest and keep fit.

Organised by SAFRA Tampines for the third year, the swim featured 43 father-and-child pairs in a new segment meant to promote family bonding.

According to SAFRA, S$20,000 was raised and will benefit children with special needs and youth at risk through three beneficiaries of the Community Chest: Grace Orchard School, Association for Persons with Special Needs Katong School and the Youth Guidance Outreach Services Experiential Learning and Mentoring Programme.
