Over the years we have received inspiring and heartfelt testimonials from swimmers, kayakers volunteers and others who have participated in the Swim. We will periodically add to these – please send us your experiences and thoughts. Thanks!

Below are some responses we received from those who participated in our recent survey:

“Love the mix of the profound and ridiculous, the competition & cooperation of everyone in the water, the mixing of duffers like me with world class swimmers, high schoolers from Wellesley…”

“Nicest charity event I have ever participated in.”

“This is the 2nd best day of the year for me. The first is when I see my children in India.”

“You changed my life!”

“…most uplifting annual event that I join in.”

“Excellent way to use grief as a motivator, to stay in shape, to assist the Outer Cape health services in Ptown. And…the swim is a lot of fun.”

“I LOVE the swim for life! I love being part of something that helps my beloved P-town. It’s a highlight of the year for me and I hope I can do it long into my dotage.”

“Being part of the Human community matters the most.”

“I appreciate the largeness of the swim but still value the smallness of its feel and reach.”

“I had a heart attack 3 years ago and decided that I would commit to swimming in the swim for life. It was one of the most meaningful moments of my life.”
