The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 10, 2016

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Sep 10, 2016

Our Co-founder/CFO Arash Bayatmakou has benefited greatly from swimming and water therapy for his recovery from Spinal Cord Injury. In his words, "the water is my happy place!" As a way to set and pursue a massive goal, push his limits and continue his work towards recovery, he has decided to circumnavigate Donner Lake. And we want you to join! 

Challenge yourself and come out to swim 1 mile, 3 miles or the entire 5.8 mile perimeter of Donner Lake at the end of the summer! We will have training swims and other fun events planned regularly between now and then so don't worry if you have little experience. Choose a goal to work towards and get out there for a unique experience in a magical setting in the mountains.

Not down for a swim? Come support by cheering on our swimmers from the shore or from a kayak! It will be a fun filled day (or weekend if you choose). We will have some goodies for all registrants (swimmers and non-swimmers alike) on the day of, more details to come. 

​All funds raised from the event will go towards No Limits Collaborative and helping us work towards our mission.
