Participants of all ages and skill levels are invited to choose their open-water distance of .5 miles, 1.5 miles or  3 miles. There are also offer opportunities to volunteer as a kayaker or land volunteer. This event is not a competition, but a fun fundraising event for everyone.

Swimmers are required to raise at least $500 by event day. Those under 18 or current college undergrad students are required to raise $200 by event day.
