Provincetown Swim For Life 2022 Events

By Charlotte Robinson, August 09, 2022

Celebrating 35 years as a community tradition the Provincetown Community Compact is presenting their annual Provincetown Swim for Life & Paddler Flotilla fundraiser on September 10th. The 35th anniversary of this event takes place along the East End shoreline of Provincetown Harbor & will begin at 11A on the beach at the Breakwater & Harbor Hotels & ends at the new Cannery Wharf Park. A parallel Swim for Life also takes place September 10th at Wellfleet’s Great Pond. Jay Critchley, Director of The Compact stated, “We are thrilled to be back at the town’s new spectacular waterfront park & welcome swimmers, kayakers, volunteers, safety boaters & our fans from across the country.” The Provincetown Swim for Life & Paddler Flotilla fundraiser has raised over $6M for AIDS, women’s health & the community. Last year it attracted over 250 swimmers including 33 swimmers “Swimming in Place” around the country. Over 100 volunteers are invited to assist on land & sea including kayakers. Transport to the start will be provided by the Funk Bus & the famous Mermaid Brunch will be catered by Far Land Provisions with the world-traveling Zoe Lewis providing the music. Watch parties along the shore are organizing to cheer the swimmers on. The finish line at the big white tent will feature the Prayer Ribbons Garden a 150-foot half circle installed on the beach in front of the retaining wall to celebrate & memorialize our loved ones. The public is invited to share this post-Labor Day tradition along the shore & greet swimmers at the finish line at Cannery Wharf Park where there will be food, beverage and entertainment. You can also register to swim in your own favorite place on your own schedule.
