2016 & 2017 RECAPS AVAILABLE NOW!
ABOUT THE 2017 EVENT
The Around the World Swim is a 10-mile open ocean swim around California’s Coronado Island happening on April 29, 2017. The event was inspired by the SEAL Hell Week evolution of the same name when students paddle small boats around Coronado Island. This swim will symbolize the endurance and strength required by Camp Sunshine families.
The goal is to raise in excess of $100,000 to support sending military families to Camp Sunshine – a year-round, one-of-a-kind retreat in Casco, Maine for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Active and former military members will begin their swim on the beach of the famous Hotel del Coronado at sunrise. After navigating the 54OF waters, sea life, and boat traffic into San Diego bay, the swimmers will finish at Glorietta Bay Park. The Beach Landing Party will give participants a chance to mingle with event sponsors and Camp Sunshine families from the San Diego area.
“Just like the Camp Sunshine children and their families this event will support, the swimmers can’t quit – failure is not an option!” CDR Mike W., event creator
