BENEFITING: OWLS FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Jul 24, 2016

THE STORY:

Created and organized by OWOL Inc, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting safe swimming practices, open water swimming and lake preservation, The Great Lake Plunge is Evanston's first and only open water swimming event with the goal of raising funds to support a wonderful local organization: Evanston Swims!. We know that there are a large number of children in our communities who do not know how to swim. A survey of Evanston families revealed that just 17 percent of first graders were proficient swimmers. Almost a quarter had no swimming experience -- a basic and vital life skill for any child, especially living in a lakefront community. Evanston Swims!, a partnership between YWCA Evanston/North Shore, McGaw YMCA, and District 65, seeks to remedy that need by providing all second grade children in Evanston with free water safety instruction and swim lessons. http://www.greatlakeplunge.com/
