As we have in the previous few years, we'll start on Williams Bay beach at 7 am and swim to Gordy's in Fontana, approximately 3 miles. You may swim the course as an individual or as a relay. Each swimmer will still be required to have their own support boat, but we will again allow SUPs and kayaks for support. We will also have extra support going up and down the course to check on all swimmers.
All proceeds will go to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Not only is it a great cause but it's also a lot of fun! We will be having a “tailgate” style post swim party right near the finish line, and we'll also be raffling off some great prizes.
If you're not up for the swim, please consider supporting the event through a monetary donation and/or by donating your boat for us to use as support for the other swimmers.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides full scholarship grants and educational and family counseling to the surviving children of special operations personnel who die in operational or training missions and immediate financial assistance to severely wounded special operations personnel and their families.
