Usually I train all year in an 80 degree pool to be ready for the 3.1mile swim across Newfound Lake for Swim with a Mission.  This year has presented some training challanges!  I have been very fortunate to spend the quarantine in this beautful town, with this amazing Newfound community.  With the help of a hooded cold water wet suit, booties, and gloves I was able to get in the water in the 40s, 50s, 60s, and now FINALLY in the 70 degrees!!!  It was very important to me that I continue to participate in the event to honor our veterans and I hope you will continue to support this cause.  

New this year,  all participants will be paired with a fallen soldier.   I have been paired with USMC PFC Eric D. Currier from Londonderry NH who died at the age of 21 in 2010 serving during Operation Enduring Freedom.  I will also swim in honor of my father's twin brother Eddie who was killed in action at the age of 19 in Vietnam. (USMC Corporal Edward F. Furlong)  These two Fallen Heroes have served as my inspiration for these few (cold) months swimming and their courage will continue to push me forward to complete the event.  Any contribution to this amazing cause is appreciated more than you can know.

Since 2017 Swim With A Mission has raised over $2 million for Veterans through a variety of events including this swim event. Go to www.swimwithamission.org to learn more.
