26.2 miles swim for EMC
Every Mother Counts has been using running events as fundraising and awareness raising opportunities. These races are great metaphors for the obstacles, including travel distances, many women have to overcome during pregnancy and labor to reach or get the care needed. In 2017, inspired by EMC's running events, a few Greenwich Y members and friends, celebrated Mother's Day by swimming a 12-hour relay and fundraising for EMC. This year Tribeach (USMS) Club would like to provide more swimmers the opportunity to swim with a purpose and dedicate their laps to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere. Please joint the team!
Every year on Mothers Day weekend on Saturday (@YMCA) at 6:30 am, we start the long distance swim as a fun, team-oriented fundraiser, and an opportunity for competitive swimmers to test their endurance and strive for the fastest marathon distance - 26.2 mile - swim (1,844 laps).
