On September 17, a team of six intrepid Red Tide Masters Swimmers will enter the waters of Lake George and swim the full 32 miles to the far shore. Since Diane Struble first made the crossing in 1958, only seven other solo swimmers and one relay have accomplished this feat!
We start at 3:00 PM on Saturday and swim through the night, with the swimmers and the boat illuminated by glow sticks and safety lights. We will rotate swimmers each hour and likely spend more than 15 hours total in the water. We plan to finish mid-morning on Sunday, September 18 with tired bodies and joyful souls.
Through this swim, our team is raising money for The Fund for Lake George, a not-for-profit, privately funded organization that is dedicated to the protection of Lake George. The FUND applies a science-guided approach to protection focused on both water quality and the overall health of the Lake George watershed.
Please help us to protect this beautiful body of water so that others can enjoy the tranquil waters of Lake George for many years to come!
