About the Tickle Swim
Established in 2013 by community activist and current Deputy Mayor of the city of St. John’s, Sheilagh O’Leary, the Tickle Swim for Mental Health is a 5km swim across the tickle from Bell Island to Portugal Cove-St. Phillips in support of CMHA-NL’s work in Newfoundland and Labrador. The aim of the event is to raise awareness surrounding mental health issues in our province, and the inherent need for all of society to maintain good mental fitness, just as we focus on our physical fitness.
Secondly, this event aims to raise funds for CMHA-NL to support our work across this province. Swimmers of all abilities are welcome provided they are fit enough to complete the distance. This is not a race although some friendly competition does occur.
