Jumeirah's Wild Wadi Waterpark and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), with the support of the Red Crescent Society, are preparing for the multitude of enthusiastic swimmers who flock to Wild Wadi Waterpark for the ever popular Swim Burj Al Arab. In addition to a reduced entrance fee and revised age categories, this year all participants will be timed using computerized timing chips.

Keen swimmers can register in the competitive event or Family Swim for a minimum donation of 275 AED, which gives them the chance to compete for a variety of prizes. There is also a 'Best Fundraiser' prize up for grabs for the person that collects the highest amount.

Under the watchful eyes of Wild Wadi lifeguards, the swim will take place at 8am on Friday 12th November 2010, following a 1km arc around the iconic Burj Al Arab, finishing at Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

Funds raised will support the independent humanitarian medical organization - Médecins Sans Frontières, to provide medical aid where it is most needed.

Family and friends will be welcome to cheer on the participants and enjoy a morning of community spirit and humanitarian awareness on the beach at Jumeirah Beach Hotel, knowing that they are helping to make a difference.
