We are each swimming a 10K for charity!
Swimmers: Paul Reader, Matt Keller, Aaron Gabriel, Kevin Scanlan
As many of you already know, our favorite open water swimming events in the Chicago area have been cancelled this year. Although we won’t be able to swim these events in 2020, we must remember that bc they all support important local charities, and these cancellations have affected them as well.
Our swimming community is unique, and this is our chance to step up and continue our missions. We are very excited to introduce The Great Chicago Charity Swim! Let’s swim, train, and race with a goal in mind and support for your favorite swimming-related charities.
Please consider making any donation you can, every bit helps . Proceeds will benefit the following organizations:
A Long Swim – Collaborative ALS research at Northwestern University
Big Shoulders – The Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving programs at UIC
Great Lake Plunge – Swimming lessons for young children through Evanston Swims!
Swim Across America – Rush University Cancer Center
Wilmette Open Water Swim – Ouilmette Foundation for the parks in Wilmette
These groups are leaders in the Chicago-area open water swimming community, and are coming together now to host this collaborative event.Each charity will receive an equal share of your registrations and contributions raised.
