My dad was an Honor Guard at Arlington Cemetery. My mom was an Airman First Class in the Pentagon. I am very proud of my nephew Ben who serves this country in the Army as an officer. Patriotism is a part of who I am. I am thrilled to be able to become a part of this great event to help veterans and challenge myself to swim a 5k in open water. This is nothing when compared to the sacrifice that our service men and women make everyday.
Every donation however small or large will help me meet my goal! I thank you all for taking time to read this and hopefully support me in this worthy cause of helping those who served and still serve our country.
The 2nd Annual Swim With A Mission will take place on Saturday, July 14th on beautiful Newfound Lake in Bristol, NH. There will be 1K, 5K, and 10K individual swim races and a 10K Relay. Individuals and Teams are required to raise money to participate and will compete in the morning which will be followed by family activities and a demonstration by the U.S. Navy SEALs and K-9 Teams. All of the money raised will go to support Veterans and to charitable organizations that provide service and support for Veterans.
