Swim for Hospice

Make a Splash for Hospice!

8th Annual Swim for Hospice
&
PoolaPalooza

Sunday July 21, 2019

 

Swim for Hospice is one of our Signature Events and is a great opportunity for you to get wet for a good cause!

Our fundraising events help to ensure that the end of life care, programs and services continue to be offered free to those in Huntsville and the surrounding areas.
Help us make a big splash towards our fundraising goal of $25,000 by participating in Swim for Hospice.

 

There are three ways to support the Swim for Hospice:

1. If you are not swimming but would like to donate to the Swim or make a donation to a Swimmer click on the “Donate Now” button below

2. Make a Splash by becoming a SWIM DAY PARTICIPANT at PoolaPalooza! On Sunday July 21, 2019 Joy Jarvis, a local long distance swimmer, will complete a 12 km Swim for Hospice. Joy will leave from the Huntsville Town Docks, swim the Muskoka River, out and around Centreview Island in Lake Vernon, and return to the Huntsville Town Docks.
