This will be my first year swimming in this event and I'm excited to be helping raise money for our Veterans! My Uncle and Grandfather both served and I have many friends who have and are serving our Country now. I am so grateful for their service. I am proud to be representing them in this swim and hope to be able to give back just some of what they have given for us!
This is also my longest open water swim, 5K! I've got some serious training to do!! I am also very excited to have 2 of my best friends by my side! Michele as my swimming partner and Kim volunteering her time as a kayaker!! She will also be watching out for us as we train for this amazing event! Couldn't do it without them!!
The 3rd Annual Swim With A Mission is an Open Water Swim across Newfound Lake in Bristol, NH that raises money to help Veterans. Newfound Lake is the cleanest lake in the Northeast of the U.S. and a perfect spot for a swim.
We have several swim options: Sign up as a team to swim the 10K Relay or compete individually in the 1K, 5K, or 10K swim.
Since 2017 Swim With A Mission has raised $1.2 million for Veterans through many events including this swim event. SWAM chooses worth organizations that directly service and support our Veterans. Fundraising is not required to participate in the Swim but it is highly encouraged! This is a day long festival for the whole family. Swim races are in the morning. Stay for the afternoon which will include awards presentation, military demonstrations by the Navy SEALs and the NH National Guard, K-9 Demonstrations, food, and fun for the whole family.
