BENEFITING: WALLKILL VALLEY LAND TRUST INC
EVENT: Lake George Marathon Swim
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
We are a relay team of five swimmers, 1 boat captain, 2 kayakers and 1 observer, planning to swim in the 32-mile Lake George Marathon Swim on September 17th. Our goal is to raise money for land conservation, in Lake George and Ulster County, NY, where most of us hail from.
The entire 32-mile length of Lake George has only been swum seven times. It is the first year that the Lake George Marathon swim has been an organized event.
There are 12 solo swimmers and 13 teams of 3-6 swimmers, for a total of 82 swimmers registered for the new Lake George Marathon Swim, September 17-18, 2016.
So that the start and finish will be in daylight, the swim will commence at 4 pm. Swimmers and their escorts will continue through the night and celebrate Lake George for its scenic beauty and exceptional water quality.
Swimmers have pledged to raise $14,300 for charities that preserve the environment around Lake George and other charities chosen by the swimmers.
