Provincetown 30th Swim For Life

By Charlotte Robinson, September 05, 2017
The 30th Provincetown Harbor Swim For Life & Paddler Flotilla takes place this Saturday September 9th. Since 1987 thousands of swimmers, kayakers, volunteers & the public have been participating in this fabulous Provincetown fundraising tradition presented by the Provincetown Community Compact. Swimmers across the country will swim the 1.4 mile across Provincetown Harbor to benefit the following LGBTQ community organizations & ally projects: AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod (ASGCC), Helping Our Women (HOW), Outer Cape Health Services, Provincetown Rescue Squad Association, Lower Cape Ambulance Association, Soup Kitchen of Provincetown (SKIP), Provincetown Schools, The Compact Community Fund, Accessible Provincetown, West End Racing Club & Cape Cod Children’s Place. Last year swimmers raised over $300,000. Jay Critchley, one of the original founders of the event stated, “The Big 3-0! It's still a bit surreal. We've turned the AIDS tragedy into an American story of resilience & hope. We send our love & hope to the people of Texas & Louisiana in their time of tragedy. When people gather with passion & vision great things are accomplished. For thirty years in Provincetown’s Harbor of Refuge, thousands of swimmers braved its unpredictable waters − its currents, surging tides, & their deep fears − raising $3M+ for AIDS, women’s health & the community. For those unable to participate, donations are gratefully accepted & our beneficiaries are thankful. Thank you for your passionate commitment to a world of promise & reverie!” There are also lots of fabulous events throughout the weekend.
