About the Event

 

Let’s get moving together this Spring!

No matter what level of swimmer you are, your participation can be for as little as 30 minutes (which you can share as a relay with others) or more if you feel fit!

 

Not a swimmer? We have you covered!

Join us for a walk or run, starting, and finishing at Moriah College.

Can’t make it on event day? Swim, run or walk in your own time, but make sure you share your progress and photos with us. We’re here to support each other through these unprecedented times.
