Seattle Swim offers two distances of open water swims – the 0.5m and 2m swim. Depending on your swimming level and your fitness, either can be a great goal and accomplishment. You can find friends to train with, or just start a team with two or more folks.
Each swimmer must raise $300 or more in donations in order to participate. When you register for the event, you will have your own web page for your story and donations automatically created. Raising money to fight cancer while participating in an event with a personal challenge is a super combination.
Family or friends can come down to Luther Burbank Park on Mercer Island the morning of the event, where there is a ton of excitement and a great pancake feed. More details on the event can be found here.
