Celebrate with us − Sept 12, 2015

Love the journey. *

When people gather with passion and vision great things are accomplished. For a quarter century, in one of the largest natural harbors in the world, thousands of swimmers braved its unpredictable waters − its chilly currents, surging tides, and their deep fears − raising narly $3M for AIDS, women’s health and the community.

Celebrating its 28th year, this quintessential Provincetown tradition symbolizes the heroic efforts of a community devastated by the pandemic and its unequivocal response to it. The Swim for Life & Paddler Flotilla has become a catalyst for a nurturing community, offering connectedness, healthy exercise and continuity for those who return year after year.
