Description :

Water Babies, Irelands leading baby and toddler swim school are running the Water Babies Splashathon, a sponsored swim for babies and toddlers which will take place during Water Babies classes across Ireland between 18th and 26th April 2015.

We will be raising vital funds for the Jack & Jill foundation as our national charity and our three local charities are Hand in Hand based in Galway, Kilkenny Branch Downs Syndrome Ireland and CUH Childrens Ward, Cork.

During Water Babies Splashathon fundraising week, babies and toddlers across the country will complete sponsored challenges in Water Babies classes, from swimming solo underwater to swimming through a hoop, baby and parent gliding underwater through the hoop or even completing a Splashathon circuit challenge in the pool!

Overview :

Jack & Jill
Over the past 18 years, Jack & Jill has supported over 1,800 children from birth to 4 years old? These children have brain damage and suffer severe intellectual and physical trauma and the Foundation also provides end of life care for all children who require it from birth to 4 years of age.  

Children’s Unit CUH
Over 10,000 children attend the Children’s Unit, (which comprises of the Puffin, Seahorse and Ladybird Wards) at Cork University Hospital every year. With the help of the Water Babies Splashathon, CUH will make every child’s journey a little easier by continuing to deliver the best paediatric care that the children deserve, right across the region, in Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Clare, Tipperary and Waterford.  


Hand in Hand
Children’s Cancer Charity, Hand in Hand, provides practical and emotional support to families who have a child diagnosed with cancer. Using professional service suppliers, Hand in Hand offer a regular domestic cleaning service, help with childcare, laundry and family meals helping to maintain some sense of normality and stability to families in turmoil.  


Downs Syndrome Kilkenny Branch
Down Syndrome Kilkenny Branch is a voluntary organisation supporting local people with Down syndrome and their families. Activities organised include new parents conference, summer camps and music and art sessions.



Where Your Money Goes :

Funding for Jack & Jill

With less than 20% of its funding coming from the State, the Jack & Jill Foundation relies on the generosity of the public and fundraising campaigns such as Water Babies ‘Splashathon’ to keep going and has raised over €50 million privately since 1997 while receiving less than €5 million in State funding throughout that time. 

Children’s Unit CUH

Over 10,000 children attend the Children’s Unit, (which comprises of the Puffin, Seahorse and Ladybird Wards) at Cork University Hospital every year. Water Babies Splashathon funds raised will assist in the upgrade and refurbishment of the Unit which has not been upgraded since 1978 and provide much-needed state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. 

Funding for Hand in Hand

Hand in Hand receives no state funding and so we are totally reliant on fundraising events and donations. All funds raised from the Splashathon will be used to fund our core support services, giving families less stress and more precious time to spend with their children.  

Downs Syndrome Kilkenny Branch
Funds raised will support the running of a two day New Parents conference which addresses the needs of Parents with Down Syndrome Children under 2 years of age. The conference will include Parents Journey, Sibling relationships, Early Communication, Health care and Baby massage.
