The Austins love to be in all types of water. Our multi-generational team is a family of super swimmers from age 3 - 60. Our challenges range from 100 dives, 5 polar plunges in Tasmania, 100 laps in a rooftop pool, 10 K in Lake Michigan, aligator avoidance swims in Orlando to backyard pool hopping in LA.
Please donate to The Great Chicago Charity Swim which benefits these five charities equally:

These groups are leaders in the Chicago-area open water swimming community, and are coming together now to host this collaborative event.
