As many of you know, 4 years ago we started a charity called Swimming With A Mission, Inc. Through a variety of events throughout the year, we raise money that we give to Veterans Service organizations in NH and around the country that directly help Veterans. We focus on several different types of organizations, especially those who focus on mental health. Whether they are equine programs, art therapy programs, support K-9's, many of these organizations help with the invisible wounds of our Veterans. With all that is going on in the world, our Veterans need us more than ever.
Our largest events of the year, Swim With A Mission (a swim and festival at Newfound Lake) and Paintball With A Mission (a corporate paintball event), were supposed to happen July 9-11. We have had to change things up a little bit this year due to Covid-19 so we have gone virtual! Anyone can participate, anywhere! You can choose to swim, paddle or take on a Navy SEAL Challenge. For more information about how you can participate or to learn more about what we do, go to www.swimwithamission.org.
We know that 2020 has been a difficult year for many, but we are hoping that you will join our mission for our Veterans. Any little bit can help! Thank you in advance!

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.
