|Park to Park Swim from Matthews Beach to O.O. Denny Park|
Early bird registration is now open for the Park to Park Swim on Sunday August 21, 2016.
Park to Park Swim is an open water swim across beautiful Lake Washington from Matthews Beach to O.O. Denny Park benefiting Seattle Children's Hospital. We are proud to report that in its 11-year history, the swim has raised over $150,000 for Children's Emergency Patient Assistance Fund.
This year swimmers have more options, and support:
- CHOICE OF SINGLE- OR DOUBLE-CROSSINGS of the lake: "The Classic"-1.3 mile lake crossing from Matthews Beach to O.O. Denny Park ($65 until April 30; then $80 until sold out) or "The Double Dip"-2.5 mile double lake crossing from O.O. Denny Park to Matthews Beach and back. (only 50 spots available at $100)
- TIMING CHIPS: All swimmers can now track their crossing times.
- BUOYS ARE BACK! also our hot breakfast at Denny Park finish
If you volunteered in 2015 and would like to help again, please sign up early! The need is greatest for boats, kayakers, and paddle boarders so please spread the word. This event requires a lot of coordination and we appreciate all the help we can get.
