12 km Swim – 5 hours & 20 minutes


There is still time to support Joy’s Swim



On July 18, Joy Jarvis swam 12km to raise funds and awareness for Hospice Huntsville.
This year marks the 10th year that Joy has been swimming to support the local organization.  Joy swim was 5 hours and 20 minutes this year.

My 10th Swim for Hospice was a great success. I had a group seeing me off and a group cheering

  me at the end. The conditions were good, sunny and calm water a little cool in places. For the

  first time I felt the current in the river going out luckily it was behind me coming back. My swim        

  this year was completed in 5 hours and 20 minutes, my strokes were 55 strokes a minute. I had   

  an amazing crew who were there supporting me and cheering me on throughout the swim. I am

  overwhelmed by everyone’s support for my Swim for Hospice this year and from the bottom of

  my heart – THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH”   Joy Jarvis

Every dollar raised stays in our community to directly offset operational costs of the Hospice Huntsville and allow comprehensive end-of-life care to people and their families/caregivers across the Huntsville/Lake of Bays, Almaguin Highlands region, completely free of charge.  The organization needs to raise 60% of their annual operating budget every year through fundraising events and donations.  Hospice Huntsville continues to work and ensure that all community members receive the end-of-life care they wish for.
