Chanelle’s 5K Swim Challenge


Chanelle’s Swim Challenge is a 5K (3.2 mile) open water swim . The event will now be held in conjunction with a Team-Z open water event on October 2 and will include an optional run and BBQ afterwards.The purpose of the event is to raise money to purchase the rehab/exercise equipment necessary for the continued road to recovery and my quest to walk again. Visit the “Fund Details” page for more information about the equipment. I will be swimming too and would love for you to join me! Volunteers please arrive at Guntson Cove by 9:00AM.

***Please note change in start time! Also, the water temperature will be around 69 degrees and wet suites are highly recommended.
