Three local swim teachers are making a splash for sick kids.

Bec Barnacle, Erin Moodie and Stephanie Jiggins from JUMP! Swim Schools Villawood are taking part in the Starlight Children's Foundation Super Swim.

The trio completed the 30-day swim challenge on Wednesday and swam a combined 35-kilometres - which is the equivalent of 44-laps of a 25-metre pool per day.

Twice a week each of them would take to the pool to complete up to 1.5-kilomtres in the water.

Their original goal was to raise $500. They are now up to $750 with donations being accepted until March 23.

"It was a little bit of a fitness challenge and a chance to raise some money for charity at the same time," Bec said.

"We all work with kids, so we thought Starlight would be a good charity to support."

Every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital in Australia.
