The 2,4,6 km invitational open water swim established in 1998, was renamed in 2013 by the Balmoral Beach Club in Erik’s memory.
“Erik left a wonderful legacy to the community through the creation of the Balmoral Beach Club Nippers, which is said to have the highest participation rate across all of the Nippers programs in NSW,” Monika Mather told Mosman Collective this week.
“Every contribution will help reach our target this year of $25,000.
The Erik mather 2, 4, 6 Swim was established in 2013.
“All donations are received by the Melanoma Institute Australia and will directly fund the Erik Mather PhD Scholarship program established to recognise the significant contribution that the event and the BBC community make to research programs in melanoma treatment at the Melanoma Institute Australia.”
Balmoral Beach Club members and member’s guests participating in the race are encouraged to make a contribution of any amount, in support of the Melanoma Institute of Australia.
The target this year is $25,000.
