Thanks to everyone who participated this year. Our fundraising total was over $27,000!


We are pleased to announce that the 4th annual Swim a Mile for Hospice will take place on Saturday, August 3, 2013 at the Postwood Park in Hannawa Falls.

Everyone completes the swim at her or his own rate: some more experienced swimmers finish the course in about 30 minutes; others take more than an hour, stopping to chat and dog-paddle as they move around the lake. Speed is not the important thing. What is important is sharing a unique athletic experience on Hannawa Pond and raising money for Hospice and Palliative Care of St. Lawrence Valley in the process. Prizes are given to those swimmers and boaters who raise the most money in sponsorships. 

To ensure that the event remains safe and fun for all, there will be no "rain date" for the swim. This is because we rely on the help of several dozen volunteers and many other important support services and are unable to ensure full participation of all the volunteers and services vital to the safety of the event on two consecutive days.

Swim a Mile for Hospice' is a community swim (not a race!) around Hannawa Pond for people ages 14 and over. Together we raise funds which will go directly to support patient and family services here in St. Lawrence County. Thank you so much for your support!

Thank you so much for your interest in Swim a Mile for Hospice!
