Thank you. You have made a difference in the lives of hundreds of Veterans. As Swim With a Mission continues to evolve we understand more about the needs of our Veterans. It is very evident that companionship is critical to the well being to our Veterans. With that, we are focusing our attention on providing service dogs to Veterans and developing art programs, both of which address the invisible wounds that too many of our veterans are suffering through. Last year, we added an event Whiskey and Whiskers that focuses on military K9’s, both in combat and in their roles as service K9’s to our Veterans. In the fall we are kicking off our art fundraising efforts by bringing Portraits of Courage to New Hampshire, a unique collection of paintings of Veterans by President George W. Bush.
Our sincerest thanks,
Sue & Eric
Swim With A Mission
The 4th Annual Swim With A Mission, an Open Water Swim Race and Festival was scheduled for Saturday, July 11th at Wellington State Park in Bristol NH. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we have shifted our event to a Virtual Event. We would much rather have our live event and are disappointed about the change but we know that it is necessary at this point. Even in these tough times, we hope you will help us stay true to our mission to raise money to help Veterans and inspire others to help.
Virtual Events are open to everyone and will take place from July 1-31. Participants can choose to swim (1K, 5K or 10K), paddle (1K, 5K or 10K) or take on the SEAL Team NH Challenge. All participants are encouraged to raise funds that will go to our Veterans who need our help more than ever. Swimmers can also choose to swim more than once during the month of July and they will be able to record distances and times. Go to www.swimwithamission.org for more details.
Since our formation in 2017, we have donated over $6 million to honor and support local, regional and national veteran support organizations that provide critical services to our Veterans. These include supporting Veteran organizations that provide housing, take care of our homeless, support day to day services, provide service and support K-9’s, scholarships, jobs, create equine immersion programs and support art programs. Please explore our site to get more details about how you can get involved with us and our mission.
