This is a non-competitive swim from the marina in Nyack, NY to Kingsland Point Park in Sleepy Hollow, NY. Swimmers will be required to raise pledges for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
For those swimmers interested in completing a shorter route, a one-mile swim will be offered along the shores of Sleepy Hollow. Swimmers will be asked to raise pledges for LLS.
For those who would like to participate on the water rather than in it, we welcome you to participate as a kayaker. These volunteers are essential to guiding and assisting the swimmers in the water for safety.
Since its inception, the mission of The Hudson River Swim For Life has been to raise awareness of the Hudson River, promote swimming as a lifelong form of fitness, and to raise funds for the ongoing efforts of charities in the community. Overall, the event has raised approximately $2.2 million for local non-profit organizations.
