Charity Swims

The Brighton Jetty Classic has always been a community fundraiser. Initially for the Brighton surf lifesaving club to fund
the replacement of their original clubrooms and facilities, now for the ongoing running of the club and proposed observation tower to better serve our beach loving community.

The Brighton Jetty Classic has also partnered with numerous charities, with swimmers raising additional funds for some fantastic causes.

The Marilyn Jetty Swim

The inaugural Marilyn Jetty was held as part of the 2014 Brighton Jetty Classic. Since then it has fast become a crowd favourite. In 2017 The Marilyns raised over $100,000 for the Cancer Council, in doing so surpassed $200,000 for the 4 years to date.

7BJC Club/Charity or School Donations


As an additional way of giving back to the community the Brighton Jetty Classic makes donations to the sporting club, school or charity that has the most supporters registered to swim.  Make sure you nominate this when you register for them to be eligible to receive the $500, $300 or $200 donation.
