HELP SEND MILITARY FAMILIES TO CAMP SUNSHINE!
ABOUT THE 2019 EVENT
On Thursday, July 25, 2019 the evolution of the SEALs for Sunshine events reached another pinnacle as swimmers embarked on their next mission for Camp Sunshine - The Swim for Sunshine Challenge. The event began in Bridgton, Maine and concluded 16-miles later at Camp Sunshine in Casco. This was the longest swim challenge in SEALs for Sunshine history!
The swimmers started their day on Long Lake in Bridgton, they then began an epic 8-mile journey to the causeway in Naples (stopping at Camp Takajo along the way). The team then swam the 2.5 mile length of
Brandy Pond before entering the headwaters of the Songo River. For nearly 3 miles the brave men participating navigated the meandering waterway which opens up into Sebago Lake. The final leg to Camp Sunshine concluded with a typically windswept 2.5 miles.
Team members needed to be in the best shape of their lives to take on this challenge through 3 towns, 2 lakes, 1 pond, and a river.
The following evening Camp Sunshine hosted the 2019 Swim for Sunshine reception providing guests with the opportunity to meet and thank the SEALs and other team members.
