Since beginning in 2014, the Marilyn Jetty Swim has blown Adelaide out of the water, raising an incredible $117,000 to help beat cancer and in true Marilyn style, grabbed national and international headlines.

We guarantee you’ll feel empowered as you join this adventurous group of women from all different walks of life, united by their passion for seeing the end of cancer.

You’ll enjoy being professionally made up, before splashing into an invigorating paddle, 400m around Brighton Jetty.  And if swimming is not your style, there’s plenty to be done onshore, with Marilyns parading the shoreline, handing out sunscreen and collecting donations.

While strutting around in your swimwear may seem daunting, founder of the Marilyn Jetty Swim, Sarah Tinney, emphasises, “This is not a beauty competition, this is about having fun while supporting an important cause”.


Every dollar that you raise will help change so many lives. For some, this help will come in the form of a phone call, a place to stay, some information or a new treatment… just when they need it most.

Our inspiring muse, Marilyn Monroe, once said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world!”… We say, just give her the right bathing suit, a blonde wig and a touch of red lippy!

We hope you’ll enjoy us for this adventure of a lifetime!
