Although my father was not a Navy SEAL (he couldn't swim a stroke!) he did serve in the Navy for 4 yrs, 2 months and 3 days, enlisting after Pearl Harbor was bombed and passing up a football scholarship. I am participating in this event to honor him (he made sure we all learned to swim despite my objections!) and support programs for veterans.
The 3rd Annual Swim With A Mission is an Open Water Swim across Newfound Lake in Bristol, NH that raises money to help Veterans. Newfound Lake is the cleanest lake in the Northeast of the U.S. and a perfect spot for a swim. I will be a part of a 10K relay team.
