The Andrew Curry Green Lake Swim is an annual fundraiser that aims to honor our friend and brother Andrew Curry Green as well as raise funds for scholarships and other charitable programs. Held annually on Northwood Lake in Northwood, NH, dozens of swimmers swim the three mile long lake in honor and remembrance of our brother Andrew, who was tragically killed on September 11th, 2001. Starting at the far end of the lake, they swim home to Wah-Tut-Ca Scout Reservation, where Andrew served as a staff member and a camp leader for many years. Andrew’s legacy lives on through the Lake Swim as we remember his passion for the outdoors and his willingness to cheerfully serve.
In its fourteenth year, we are excited to announce that we've added a Ten Man Canoe Race to the day's activities to christen Wah-Tut-Ca's newly refurbished ten man canoes. The three teams competing will be Team Wannalancit, Team Nanepashemet, & Team Pennacook. The canoe team who raises the most money will be allowed a five minute head start.
Please consider making a donation, no matter how small, to one of the teams or participants listed below. Your donation will directly support the programs and projects of The Key Foundation. You can learn more about all of those programs and projects here.
Each swim team is comprised of a swimmer, a spotter, and a coach. If you’re interested in participating in the swim as part of a team or are interested in signing up to be on of the canoe teams, please sign up here.
And if you’d like to join us on Saturday, July 21, 2018 at Wah-Tut-Ca Scout Reservation to support the swimmers, runners, and spotters and enjoy some delicious food and music at our family BBQ, you can purchase tickets for yourself and your whole family in advance. Link for purchasing tickets is coming soon!
