Swimmer: Matthew Harrington
I will be completing the swim across Northwood Lake for the fourth time as I am passionate about supporting outdoor programs for youth.
I am participating because outdoor adventure has played a large role in my life and has shaped me into who I am today. I want to help young people to have the same opportunities I did as a scout. I remember when I was able to attend NOAC (National Order of the Arrow Convention) when I was in High School through a scholarship that was given to me by the Key Foundation.
I first attended scout camp at T.L. Storer where I camped in Thunderbird with my troop. I ended up working five different summers across three camps: T.L. Storer, Wah-Tut-Ca, and Griswold Scout Reservation.
I am asking for you to support me in supporting The Key Foundation which is a non-profit dedicated to promoting and expanding the "Culture of Camping."
