Here’s a video from the 24 Hour Swim4RVA. It was a great event. Seven teams and a total of 87 people participated. Four teams swam in continuous relays for 12 hours. Two teams swam in continuous relays for 24 hours. And, I swam 24 miles in 24 hours (one mile at the top of each hour – 24 times). It was one of the hardest swims I have ever done! At the end of 24 hours – we had covered 388,800 yards and raised $11,200 for SwimRVA’s Drownproof Richmond Campaign.
Many thanks to new and old friends for taking time to participate in this event and to raise money for such a worthy cause. In particular, thanks to Jay, Adam, Don and Jim for braving the full 24 hours. The wee hours were pretty brutal but made much more tolerable by your presence. Thanks to Molly, Amy and Chandra for companionship and support both in and out of the water. And, most of all – thanks to everyone for your donations.
Put it on your calendar for next year!
