BENEFITING: American Red Cross
EVENT DATE: Aug 20, 2016
Our swimming group has been planning to swim 3/4 mile in Puget Sound, from Boston Harbor to Burfoot Park in Olympia, Washington. Some swimmers will find the water to be cold, and sometimes there might be eddies working against us, but this is nothing compared to the ordeal that the people of Louisiana are facing during this historic flood. We will think of them while we swim, and in return our voluntary situation will seem less cold. We will give thanks for our comfortable situation by raising money for the Red Cross, so that they can help these flood victims on our behalf.
