Here is our story. We started Swim With A Mission, Inc. because we needed to do something! We are frustrated and concerned that our Veterans are being treated so poorly. Our Veterans and their families have given so much and for some, have made the ultimate sacrifice. Our Veterans deserve more. We live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, because of the brave. We hope that you will join us on this mission to help, support and honor our Veterans.
We started this organization with our friends by combining our most fundamental passions: Veterans, lake living and swimming. Our cornerstone event features a swim across Newfound Lake, the cleanest lake in the Northeast, followed by a demonstration of skills by our Navy SEALs. We now have hundreds of swimmers and volunteers showing up and raising money for our Veterans. Thousands of spectators have showed up to provide support and enjoy what has become a huge Veteran festival. We then added a unique team building day led by the Navy SEALs in which they spend time presenting to some of the top companies in the Northeast about leadership, “team first” attitude and mental toughness. We then test those skills in a paintball tournament, which in its first two years has become the highest grossing paintball charity event ever in the USA.
