Now on its fifth year, the Marilyn Jetty Swim has become an iconic part of the Brighton Jetty Classic. An exciting and unique way to be part of South Australia's largest open water swim.

Here's your chance to glam up in a white bathing suit, blonde wig, red lippy and join hundreds of fabulous Marilyns at this exciting event, all in the name of helping to beat cancer.

Marilyn Jetty Swim a yearly event that began in 2014 has raised $230,000 funds for Cancer Council SA since its inception. This year's Marilyn Jetty Swim will be particularly special as it falls on Sunday, 4 February which is also celebrated internationally as World Cancer Day. A global event, World Cancer Day unites the world's population in the pursuit of a cancer free future.

Marilyn Jetty Swim Founder, Sarah Tinney, who lost her mum to cancer in 2007, shares, "having the event on World Cancer Day makes it even more important" and "Leading the Marilyn Jetty Swim every year is my time to reflect on the loss of my mum and also do something positive to raise money for cancer. Knowing that the Marilyn's will be uniting in the cause and taking to the beach on such a special day makes it even more important!"

The Marilyn Jetty Swim will see more than 100 women dressed head to toe in the image of their icon Marilyn Munroe will swim 400 metres around the 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. Every dollar that you raise will help change so many lives.

"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."

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!

Join this adventure of a lifetime! Be bold, be fabulous and make a difference in the fight against cancer.

Cost: $55 (returning Marilyn - select this option if you already have an exclusive Marilyn wig) / $85 (new Marilyn - select this option if you have never been a Marilyn before and require a wig)
