Swim to Defeat ALS
May 31, 2017
This year is our 18th Annual The Motor City Mile charity event! The event is on Thursday, July 6th at Belle Isle Park in Detroit. This year, all of the proceeds will be benefiting the ALS Association in honor of a dear friend in the swimming community, Jim Lawrence.
The Race: There will be a 1/2 Mile, 1 Mile and a 5K course set up by bouys in the Detroit River. Belle Isle Beach will serve as start and finish for all races.
As safety is our main concern, there will be boats, kayaks, and lifeguards patrolling throughout the course to ensure every participants safety.
An optional lunch and swim clinic ran by Rowdy Gains will be held after the swims at the Detroit Yacht Club.
Click the DONATE tab if you would like to the ALS Association. All proceeds are greatly appreciated.
